Jesus of Nazareth
About this creation
With Christmas nearly ten days away, I thought it would be appropriate to create a mosaic of Jesus of Nazareth. The portrait is based off of Warner Sallman's "Head of Christ" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Head_of_Christ_by_Warner_S...

The mosaic was hand-drawn, no computer aid was used. As December 25th draws near, once again, remember what CHRISTmas is really about!

You have captured Sallman's image of the Christ figure beautifully! You are such a talent at this type of build! :)

Quoting Matt Bace Very impressive, especially considering that resolution in studs is really not that high, and you are working in only 4 shades of gray.
Yes, the resolution isn't that of a computer screen, but I think it is amazing that when LEGO mosaics are viewed from a greater distance, the image is impressively crisp and clear.

Quoting Tureaglin Naugellon Wow, it's very accurate. I think many people(including me) think moreof the presents then the actual meaning.
Yes, unfortunately, that is probably the same with a number of people (or everyone, to some extent). A good thing to remember is that it's CHRIST-mas, not SANTA-mas, or I-WANT-PRESENTS-mas. CHRIST-mas is a celebration of Jesus Christ. There lies the true joy of Christmas!

Quoting sam the first perfect. i think. no one really knows exactly what Jesus looks like, but i'm sure this is close. pure skill.
Thanks! Yes, I'm pretty sure most artists depict Jesus different than He actually is (how are we even to know what He looks like?), but at least it is the thought that counts.

5/5 :D Splendid work, Joshua ... not even it is accurate, but you picked very good picture to replicate. Plus, you have drawn whole mosaic by yourself, which is pretty difficult to do. Your Jesus has great facial expression. And, most importantly, you had courage to picture Somebody who is really above us all. I wish you great Christmas full of its original meaning. Michal

As this mosaic beautifully illustrates, Christmas is all about the LEGO. ;) Great build, and merry early Christmas. May Jesus again be born in the festivities of man.
