Floating Torii

Along the same lines as the previous post, Matija Grguric just posted a great recreation of the Miyajima Torii, one of the most famous sights in Japan. At one point the entire island of Itsukushima was considered holy, and common people could not set foot on the ground there. A shrine to the daughters of the Shinto god of the sea and storms, Susanoo, stands on piers out over the water. The shrine would be approached by boat, and adherents would sail through the gate sitting out in the bay.


  1. With the theme of religious lego, this blog is by a Muslim who blogs with Lego, sometimes on religious themes (mostly Islam).

  2. Cool! Thanks for the link. I'll read through that as another source for content. Most of what I see tends to be Christian, just because LEGO is most prominent in parts of the world where Christianity is the dominant faith, so it's always great to find other things.
