LEGO Sculpture Akiyuky's 'Great Ball Contraption' Inspired: 11 Amazing LEGO Designs (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

A creative and well built LEGO structure is a beautiful thing. We've been design geeks since childhood and were all pretty much obsessed with playing with LEGOs as kids.

The Daily News reported that even Michael McNally, a spokesperson for LEGO called this great ball contraption “phenomenal.”

It inspired us to dig a little deeper for other amazing LEGO sculptures and what we've found are definitely works of art. Click through our slideshow to see a beautiful butterfly, a life-size slot machine and 9 other really cool creations made from LEGOs.
