LEGO Umbrella Actually Keeps You Dry

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 5, 2012


LEGO bricks are incredibly versatile things. You can build just about anything with them, as is proven by artist Nathan Sawaya and his latest creation – the LEGO umbrella.

While you can’t really tell from the image above, the LEGO umbrella is able to keep water off of its user, although its weight probably makes it pretty impractical. Sawaya says it required “extreme patience” to create, and that’s coming from the guy who made a life-size LEGO statue of Conan O’Brien – though he wasn’t standing in the rain.

Nathan created the umbrella for a collaboration with photographer Dean West for a series that’s currently on exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art as part of the Think Outside the Brick show, running through January 27, 2013.
