From September 26 through January 4, there will be an exhibition on display at the Old Truman Brewery featuring about 80 sculptures by artist Nathan Sawaya, all of them made entirely out of Lego bricks.
If you’re a fan of art, or of Lego, you might look at these elaborate and impressive creations and ask, how long do these take, or where does he get his ideas, or how many Lego sets does it take to be able to make a life-sized human figure?
If you’re a fan of crate shipping, however, your first thoughts probably have to do with the logistics of packing, transporting, and setting up 80 sculptures made of a material that isn’t exactly known to bond firmly to itself. Presumably, Sawaya puts a sealant over top of his creations after he’s done, but even so this must be one of the most challenging types of art shipping out there.
We here at Box Brothers puzzled over the images for a while, but now we’re confident that with the right shipping crates and packing supplies, we could arrange to ship these sculptures intact from London to the US, and even bring them across the continent to Las Vegas, Seattle, San Francisco, or Hollywood.
