This LEGO Star Wars M.C. Escher diorama defines awesome

Here's an impressive Star Wars sculpture that gives that insanely detailed organ a run for its money. Check out Paul Vermeesch's take on M.C. Escher's "Relativity" made out of Star Wars LEGO bricks. This project includes the Emperor at the center of the scene (for thematic purposes), Luke's runaway hand, and a slot to slide in an iPod touch (for metatextual reasons). Here's Vermeesch's description of this light-up scene:

This is my largest creation to date: a 1x1x1 foot model of M.C. Escher's print "Relativity" reenacted in the LEGO Star Wars theme [...] this diorama is fully lit from the inside, presents the original Star Wars trilogy in a roughly counterclockwise format, and even features a minifig-scale theatre in the back which plays Lego's CG version of the Star Wars saga.
