The dissected Lego frog

Frog1.jpg

We once built a Lego phallus in primary school and used it to scare Amy Watkins. It wasn't big and it wasn't clever. This is both of those things...

Lego enthusiast Dave Kaleta, a kindergarten teacher from Chicago, created this impressive, anatomically correct dissected frog as his entry for a competition for which the only brief he’d been given was ‘Lego anatomy’.

Kaleta says he originally had a couple of different ideas which involved Rembrandt’s Anatomy Lesson, but he settled on the genius frog project after finding out that his original idea had already been nabbed by a fellow competitor.

It took Kaleta a surprisingly short seven hours to build the frog over three days, during which he worked from images he found online. He estimates that between 1000-2000 pieces are included in the final creation.
