This Cherry Blossom Tree Is Made out of Over 800,000 Lego Bricks

Art comes in all sorts of different forms, from paintings to sculptures to intricate designs all the way to minimalism. Whatever you're into, you can bet someone has been paid thousands and thousands of dollars to create a piece for humans to marvel at. There is often some depth to artists and why they create their pieces but sometimes, it's just to beat a world record.

This cherry blossom tree has just broken the Guinness World Record for the most bricks used in a LEGO creation and we have to say, it's amazing.
