1 Million Legos = One Detailed Replica of the Buckeyes Stadium

Paul Janssen created this monument to "The Shoe" using approximately 1 million Lego pieces, logging more than 1,000 hours over the span of two years. I'm sure about 101 thousand (lego) fans would feel quite at home in the venue.

I wonder if it will go on display somewhere. It's quite good enough to, and the details, from the trees to the atrium to the billboards, are fantastic and carefully planned out.
