The Terrace Made From LEGO

Impossible 2 September 2014 0 Comments

This impossible-looking LEGO structure was created by a Flickr user going by the handle of Brixie63.  It is a recreation of and homage to David Macdonald’s famous digital manipulation titled The Terrace.  What makes the story even more interesting is that David Macdonald created The Terrace as an homage to The Warped Chessboard painting by Sandro Del-Prete.  It would be interesting to know what Sandro’s inspiration was when he first created his painting.  For the moment, we will just call this art (LEGO) imitating art (digital) imitating art (painting).

The following two pictures reveal exactly how this illusion was pulled off.  Note how the guys at the top of the photograph are on a completely different plane as the guys at the bottom.  The entire illusion can only be completed by taking the photograph at exactly the right angle.
