Cathedral of Saint Francis

Those in the LEGO hobbyist community are probably already aware of Tony Sava's great Cathedral of Saint Francis, but I think (hope) that I also have readers from outside the LEGO community who found my blog due to their interest in religious topics. Anyway, Tony's project has been a real labor of love. He designed this fictional cathedral based on aspects of St. Patrick's in New York City and of Chartres Cathedral. It's been really fun to watch along as Tony posted work-in-progress pictures and discussed the issues he came across while building. Please go through the whole gallery to see the details. I've been (slowly) working on an article on Gothic cathedrals, and Tony has really paid close attention to all the aspects of traditional architecture.
