If you’re walking in the Crown Point neighbourhood right now, you’ll probably notice an eye-catching new display in the front window of furniture shop Filter Design at 271 Ottawa Street North.
It’s a large, colourful, vibrant, and detailed skyline display that also happens to be fully made out of Lego and it’s designed by Raymond Girard, a sculptor and artist based in Toronto known for creating unique pieces out of those nostalgic toy building blocks.
Technicolour towers stand tall behind rolling green hills in a way that’s eye-catching enough at a glance; but a closer, more careful look rewards you with all of Girard’s playful details to be found like flying sharks and, um, breeding rabbits.
Girard’s displays have been hot attractions in other storefront windows around the GTA, and this new piece – which he titles Lego Metropolitan – is his second in Hamilton, the first being a display at Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre back in 2015.
Wanna go visit the sculpture in person? Check out Raymond Girard’s Lego Metropolitan in the front window of Filter Design at 271 Ottawa Street North, where it will be on display until late April!
