From today, a LEGO brick suffragette model will be displayed at New Walk Museum in Leicester, UK. To mark 100 years of women\u2019s suffrage, Parliament commissioned a LEGO brick model of a suffragette. Now, the model is on display at the New Walk Museum in Leicester for the public to see. The model was named Hope, and will be on display until February 28. Hope is at the museum to coincide with an exhibition about Alice Hawkins and the suffragette movement. The build uses 35,000 piece and weighs 94.5kg, representing a suffragette with an iconic "Votes for women" sash. \u201cIt took around 14,000 bricks just to make the suffragette\u2019s dark grey outfit, with 12 different colours of bricks used in total,\u201d said Deputy City Mayor Coun Piara Singh Clair to Leicestershire Live. \u201cThe work that\u2019s gone in to creating the model out of LEGO is quite extraordinary, and I\u2019m sure people will enjoy seeing the detail close-up when they visit the museum.\u201d On Wednesday, February 20, there will be the opportunity to build a LEGO suffragette, or anything else that visitors desire, from 11.30am until 3.00pm.
