Time, imagination and tiny little Legos have yielded something truly amazing. 

Gizmodo spotted some remarkable images over at the Tumblr Fred_T's photostream featuring a handful of Lego sculptures. According to the report, the following images come from an exhibit which runs through September 2 that you can see now at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory

The jewel of the Lego Brick display has to be this replica Wrigley Field, which the museum's website states is made by Sean Kenney. 

If the field made of the famous toy bricks looks impressive, that's because it's made with 57,960 Legos and took 649 hours to complete, according to Gizmodo.

An exhibit that features works by Tim Kaebisch and Jason Burik covers baseball jewels such as Miller Park and Yankee Stadium, as well as sluggers like Derek Jeter and Joey Votto. In all, the works took 222,000 Lego bricks and innumerable hours to complete. 

Gizmodo's Tatiana Danger informs us the following mural showing a classic baseball scene took 55,269 bricks and four days to finish.

If harnessing buckets full of Legos wasn't impressive enough, the mural also includes the lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" in raised lettering. It's safe to say the artists who work with Legos are as meticulous as they are talented. 

So, the real question is: Do you love Legos? 

Of course you do. That was a rhetorical question, because so many grew up with these toy bricks and infinite possibilities sitting before them. 

The upcoming Lego Movie isn't the only way to satisfy your need for nostalgia, because the museum offers a whole mess of Legos to play with at the exhibit. 

That said, if you're ambitious enough to try and attempt the next great Lego wonder, you might have to clear a few days from your schedule.
