Rowling receives unique Lego portrait

Over 48,000 bricks were used to create a lego mosaic of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling at the Legoland Windsor theme park. Rowling won the honor after landing first place in a poll looking for the “ultimate hero” of the past ten years. Local children were an integral part of putting the mosaic together.

At Legoland, we actively encourage imagination and creativity and believe in making the children the heroes – just as Rowling does in her stories.

Other notable Potter stars who made top 10 in the poll were Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) at No. 8 and David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) at No. 9.
