One of the latest LEGO Art sets to reimagine everything you thought you knew about a theme once comprised solely of two-dimensional mosaics, 31208 Hokusai – The Great Wave recreates the legendary Japanese image across three dimensions, and then plants the painting in a brick-built frame, ready to be hung on your wall. As art pieced together from hundreds of tiny LEGO elements goes, it’s nothing short of a masterpiece.
And perhaps because of that additional attention to detail – the inspired use of bird and leaf elements to simulate the crashing waves; the tiny printed 1×1 tiles for the fishermen in the boats – along with the heft of its frame, this is one LEGO Art set that manages to feel like great value even at full price. Imagine how much of a bargain it is at 25% off, then.
31208 Hokusai – The Great Wave’s current price at John Lewis is only good through October 2, or more pertinently while stocks last. It’s selling fast online, so make sure to snap yours up today if this is one LEGO Art set you’ve had your eye on.

- I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
