Lego Clergy?

Postby Medieval Guy » Sat Sep 01, 2012 4:58 pm

Has anyone seen a good example of a Lego Bishop or any other religious figures? Bruce's monk is cool, but not quite what I'm looking for.

Many, many moons ago I made a stab at a bishop's mitre:

Not very inspirational, but perhaps enough to encourage someone to a better design.

Hey,

I did some looking around and found several variations - some involving customization, some purist. Follow the links for full size and attribution:

@ footsteps: Interesting idea. I might build on that somehow.
@Bruce: Thanks for finding all those. There are some good examples there.

I believe that many people have made bishops for the realistic/custom minfig categories of some of the CCCs. Maybe take a look at the entries page. :)

That shark head one is hilarious. I know people will say 'lego will never make a religious figure' but I'm going to go out on a limb and say, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a 'jolly monk' type CMF at some point. Or at least a shepherds crook (with a modern or ancient shepherd).

Those are awesome!
If there were an official clergy person it would end up being so dangerous, like bringing up religion and politics on Facebook.
