Great/Horrible Art in Lego

My friend Steff is visiting Legoland USA right now, and pointed out with delight the Lego rendition of San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza in Lego, complete with it's trademark love-it-or-despise-it water sculpture. The sculpture, entitled "Fountain," by Armand Vaillancourt, has been inspiring adoration and hatred since 1971. Some think it's a set of sewer pipes, other see it as an Escher drawing come to life.

In any case, Charles's reaction was priceless upon seeing the photo:
"I like how there's a firetruck there to help evacuate those that have viewed the sculpture and need to be rescued."

Thanks, Steff. Photo courtesy of Flickr user Tempo.
