LEGO bonsai tree by Makoto Azuma

We’ve seen our fair share of bonsai (everything from the inflatable to the hangable) but, oddly enough, we’ve never seen one made from everyone’s favorite building block, LEGOs. And this one is as exquisite as any serious miniature plant comes. Which is no surprise, when you learn it was built by botanical artist Makoto Azuma, whose attention to detail is apparent in the uneven ground and the moss on the tree.
