LEGO bricks were some of our favorite toys as children – hidden in those brightly-colored blocks was the potential to build practically anything, so long as that something involved a lot of right angles. It’s hard to make slopes and curves, so most LEGO creations come out looking a lot like a box. The square nature of LEGO doesn’t seem to have been a stumbling block for Japanese builder Talapz. He recently became an internet sensation (for a second time) by building a miniature LEGO replica of Tōdai-ji, a Buddhist temple complex located in the city of Nara, Japan. But for Talapz, it’s not enough that the mini temple looks remarkably like the real thing – through some type of sorcery we may never understand, he made the LEGO building emerge, pop-up style from a giant book that’s also built of LEGO. Watch the video after the jump to view this mind-blowing feat!
