Over the summer, two busts of famous Hungarian sculptors, Miklós Izsó and Fülöp O. Beck, were stolen from Budapest's Margaret Island, home to a park featuring 30 sculptures of the country's beloved artists.

So for Christmas, the Lego Store, with the help of Y&R Budapest and Lego artist Balázs Dóczy, decided to bring those statues back -- but recreated with the toy bricks. The move not only fills the holes left by the theft of the original statues, it pays homage to the creativity of Hungary.
