The lego art of Nathan Sawaya



A: Why doesn't he just walk around the big white thing?
B: Because it's a metaphor.
A: A metaphor?
B: Yes, the white block represents an obstacle. In life one must overcome obstacles, not just avoid them.
A: Oh, okay, so this guy is walking down the street and someone dumps a big ol' refrigerator box in front of him. So instead of just walking around it, he goes and drags a ladder out and decides he needs to go over it. That makes sense.
B: Metaphoricaly speaking, yes.
A: I see. So would you say a guy who plays with a children's toy all day is like a metaphor for someone who is avoiding growing up and taking any real responsibility?
B: Shut up.
