Two-headed calf wins public vote to be built as LEGO model

The Bowes Museum, in Barnard Castle, will soon be displaying a two-headed calf built from LEGO bricks.

In bizarre LEGO news, a public vote held at the Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, UK, has seen a two headed calf selected to be built as a LEGO model. Four museum pieces were offered for the public to vote on, with the two headed calf beating the museum’s cats, Mickey Mouse and a monkey.

LEGO builder Steve Mayes was commissioned to build a replica of the museum as well as the unique model. From May 25, visitors will be able to see 15 LEGO models as part of a special brick trail throughout the museum. The exhibition gallery will host the museum replica alongside mountains of loose bricks for visitors to build with. Other items that make up the displays will also be based on artifacts found in the museum’s collection.

“Thank you all for voting across all our social media platforms and all the local schools that got involved, it was great fun,” a museum spokeperson said to The Northern Echo.

The Bowes Museum will host the LEGO brick exhibition from May 25 until October 13.
