By Jupiter! It’s Zeus–by Harrison

Harrison, aged 9, is the son of my colleague, Fincina, and is mad about LEGO. He’s been watching the Lego Masters reality competition, which has been screening in Australia, and I happen to know that a couple of years ago he and his family stayed at the Lego Hotel in Malaysia, which has all sorts of exciting activities for people who like building interesting things from small plastic bricks.

Harrison is also into mythology, and has been putting the two together. Here is his first creation, which he designed from pieces found in the family LEGO box. I think it’s marvellous: perfectly capturing the power and simplicity of a Greek god (in this case Zeus (or Jupiter, or Jove, depending on your preference)). I particularly like the double-lightning rod, which has a slight Star Wars quality to it, and the quirky raised eyebrow that indicates this all-powerful god has a bit of a sense of humour.

Harrison is now working on his next mythical mini-fig: a figure of Pan. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with.
