A gigantic Lego mosaic of pop princess Taylor Swift has been unveiled at the Legoland Windsor Resort.
To celebrate the opening of Heartlake City, a new Lego Friends themed area, Legoland bosses gave youngsters the chance to vote on which celebrity they’d most like as their best friend.
And after ‘Swifty’ topped the poll, master Lego model makers got to work in designing a Taylor template, featuring 140 different sections.
Fans used 35,840 individual bricks to fill in every blank space throughout last weekend, with every detail captured, right down to Taylor’s trademark bright red lipstick.
Lauren Moss, Legoland Windsor Resort’s PR manager, said: “People have loved bringing this striking image to life over the past couple of days.
“Taylor will be smiling down on guests in all her Lego glory until the end of the month.”
The mosaic will be on display until Sunday.
Visitors are encouraged to see it before it goes - in case it is never, ever, ever, put back together.
Take a look at how the Taylor tribute was produced in the video below.
