Time Transfixed: Amazing Train Contest Entry . Trains. When I was three that was my passion. My friend Paul Vermeesch and I were obsessed with them. Every time a train would go by the tracks that are down the street from my house, I would run to our front windows and stair contentedly at the cars as they slid by. There are so many things I could have made resembling trains, but somehow, the image of Magritte's "Time Transfixed" was transfixed in my mind. Two hour's later... TA DA! This moc was inspired by surrealist Rene Magritte's painting. I had the recording of the Aeneid (I have to read it for school) and was building while I listened. This is the first black background I have done for something other than a minifig. I used a dress shirt of mine! Enjoy! . The original painting: "Time Transfixed" The train and the smoke. The smoke is my favorite part. It consists of a lever handle encased with lever holders. Without the train and the smoke. AAAAAHHHHHH! THE MIRROR IS REFLECTING SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T EXIST!!! The back is rather ugly. Please don't judge this part... The train. I was originally going to make a small vig of a train going across the countryside. I started with the train, and then had the idea to do a version of the Magritte's painting. EDIT 4/7/11: A few day's ago, I was in Chicago and saw this painting. I realized that I got a few colors and the name of the piece wrong! The literal translation of the piece from french is "Ongoing time stabbed with a dagger." Bonus: This creation was blogged on LegendBricks! Random Photo for posterity:
