M.C. Escher’s Relativity: LEGO Star Wars Edition

We’ve seen different geeky takes on M.C. Escher’s Relativity before, but this one is simply amazing. You have the whole Star Wars trilogy here done up in LEGO and an amazing amount of detail.

This astounding LEGO build was created by Paul Vermeesch. The interior of the Death Star is here, as well as Tatooine, the Star Destroyer, Endor, and Hoth. Although it seems weird to see Luke riding a Tauntaun in his pilot uniform. Obi-Wan is even distracting stormtroopers so that he can disable the tractor beam on the Death Star.

I declare it a LEGO masterpiece. I don’t even care which side is up or how Escher’s work tricks the eye. It’s Star Wars, it’s LEGO and it is awesome. Nice work Paul.
