About this creation
Ring around the rosy
A pocketful of posies
"Ashes, Ashes"
We all fall down!

The building even has an interior with a skeleton!


Dynamic shot.


Within the last four years I found out that in certain verses of the rhyme "Ring around the Rosie" it references the Black plague, I've had a fascination with that ever since.

Some people believe that the "Ashes, Ashes" line talks of the cremation of the diseased dead, some also believe that it means the blackening of the skin after contracting the disease.

Well, I hope I haven't grossed you out too much.
:-P

Very well done. I don't know where you hail from, but interestingly here this rhyme is sung "atishoo atishoo, we all fall down." being that one of the symptoms was sneezing. Great representation here. 5 points.

Yup, I read about the whole meaning of this a bit ago and was surprised, it's amazing what rhymes can hide inside themselves. I was actually thinking about doing this rhyme for the category, but chose The Old Woman rhyme. Great rendition, it catches the mood.

It's strange to think that innocent little children go around the place singing about death and disease... Nice work and effect, this build has come out really well

Oh yes, we mustn't forget the true meaning of this nursery rhyme: The Bubonic Plague! *intense horror music followed by the Ring Around The Rosy tune* Awesomely creepy (for Lego)! Well done!

This is exactly what I was gonna do for the category. >:| Great minds think a like, I s'pose. Mine'd've had a plague doctor lurking in the background, though.

I remember hearing about the actual meaning of the rhyme as well, but to use it for this category? You have a very twisted mind. =P Actually though, this is really nice. And dark.
