LEGO artist Duncan Titmarsh recently unveiled the world’s largest LEGO snow globe in London! Glowing with LED lights, the snow globe shows fourteen London landmarks in LEGO brick grandeur. Titmarsh used 120,000 toy bricks to make the gorgeous creation, which will remain on display in Covent Garden throughout the holiday season.
Titmarsh has excited London LEGO lovers in the past with a giant map of London, oversized Christmas trees and an advent calendar – all made from hundreds of LEGO bricks. He completed his latest project – a massive snow globe made of 120,000 LEGO pieces – just in time to brighten up the holiday season.
The miniature London skyline took Titmarsh seventy-five days to complete. Inside the inflatable globe, flakes of snow whirl around London landmarks like Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, Big Ben, and the London Eye. An array of different colored LED lights line the London Eye and illuminate the other landmarks, making for a beautifully glowing installation that totally brightens up Covent Garden at night.
The installation stands over eight feet high, with some of the LEGO structures reaching seven feet. To complete the holiday magic inside the snow globe, Titmarsh has also installed fake snow machines around the piece, so that visitors can experience the frosty flakes themselves. The LEGO snow globe is free and open to the public at Covent Garden’s Piazza.
