Worker and Peasant: iconic Soviet monument in "lego"


#1

I actually got used to it, but sometimes I think that the people who visit Moscow might get Gotham vibe from “Рабочий и колхозница” (Worker and Kolknoz Woman, or Worker and Peasant which sounds a bit better in English):


When I decided to make a “lego-compatible” version of this group, I checked and found out that some guy already did it, but paying more attention to the pedestal: http://www.doublebrick.ru/mocs/luzhin/skulptura-very-muhinoy

So I tried to do the figures, and here’s my minimalistic approach:

Lego - check.
Deconstructed interpretation of iconic image with unintentional cubist (blockist?) influence - check
Clean-Cut, Square-Jawed Heroes of the Working People leading us Bravely Forward into a Bold New Future - check.

Nooo… no reasons at all why I should like this a whole lot…

:wink:

You might get more fidelity if you build at a different scale. It’s always a problem in Minecraft.


#4

I looked at the base I had and decided that’s the scale I want.


#5

I’d say constructivist.

Project on Cuusoo Brick now, please vote! Need just 99 votes to have it considered for production.

There’s a competition for the title of “Official LEGO Photographer” taking place in Russia: http://ozon.ru/lego
Even those who won’t become the Official Photographer may win some sweet LEGO prizes and fame, so I entered with a photo of my mini-monument next to its prototype.

Hey, here’s an animated render representing how I imagine this model when and if it’s produced.

I need only 82 more votes for the project to get into next stage. Warning: you need to register at the site to vote.
