This end-of-May half term, Mary Rose Museum, in partnership with LEGO building company Bright Bricks, are giving LEGO brick enthusiasts the opportunity to recreate Holbein's portrait of Henry VIII in the form of a four-metre high LEGO brick mosaic, between Saturday 26th May and Sunday 3rd June.
The famous painting of the Tudor king, on display at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, continues to be one of the nation’s most cherished works of art, and promises to provide a rich mosaic for LEGO brick fans.
Young and old will help build this iconic image of one of England’s most famous monarchs — the king who commissioned the Mary Rose.
Participation costs £5, giving you the opportunity to build an 8 x 8 studded LEGO brick square, which will then be inserted to build up the overall picture. You will receive a certificate of participation and a map showing the location of your LEGO brick square in the portrait.
You will also get the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win a LEGO ‘Ship in a Bottle’ set worth £70.
