Sawaya’s LEGO Life Reflections 2: Celebrate Difference

We continue with our life reflections inspired by Nathan Sawaya’s The Art of The Brick exhibition at the ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands, SingaporeSawaya’s TORSO series posts a challenge to today’s body and beauty ideal and just might save many people a lot of money and stress.
