Description: Look closely at this LEGO mosaic and you’ll see that it isn’t simply black and white. This illusion serves as a fit metaphor for the world today, where many situations are presented as binary, while there may be many additional aspects, intermediate perspectives, and nuance to consider.
Inspiration: Zebras are beautiful and amazing creatures and the image that inspired this mosaic absolutely knocked my socks off. I knew I wanted to build a zebra mosaic, but I didn’t anticipate how challenging it would be to capture the essence. This mosaic is on display in my gallery and I often find myself lost in the details.
