Once upon a time Dad could only buy junior the Playmobil Security Check Point (btw – read loosnut’s review) but now the creative Legofesto has gone one step further (perhaps too far?) and recreated a series of torture scenes (including waterboarding below) out of lego.
According to Wired
Flickr user Legofesto (who prefers to remain anonymous) was fed up with news outlets refusing to publish images depicting torture due to their graphic nature. So she recreated the images and first-hand accounts using Lego to protest what she saw as irresponsible censorship. The use of children’s toys is at once sanitizing and horrifying and many of the images have received thousands of views.
