Ever wondered what Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman would look like rendered in nearly two million Lego bricks? Wonder no more.

Nathan Sawaya gave up his day job as a New York lawyer to become a Lego artist a few years ago.

Since then he has made a name for himself exhibiting his creations using children's building bricks.

His latest display in London features the characters of DC Comics.
