MTI-Hungary Today 2021.09.01.

A giant picture has been built with 169,416 LEGO bricks at Budapest’s Moholy-Nagy Arts University (MOME) and put on display at its main hall, the university said.

It took more than 300 hours for over 100 people to work the color pop-art picture into a large mosaic, MOME said in a statement.

Designed by graphic art student Évu Szabó, the picture symbolizes how the arts, design, and sciences connect in multiple ways, the university said, adding that the structure weighs 150 kilos.
