Forget diamonds and emeralds and rubies, Pete Wentz is giving his pregnant new wife the gift of Lego. The odd emo-rocker had Ashlee Simpson-Wentz a giant bee made out of Lego to celebrate their wedding two weeks ago. Artist Nathan Sawaya was commissioned to create the statue comprised of 18,000 Lego bricks.
“In Hindu myth, Kama, the god of love, has a bow and arrows, and the bow string is made up of bees. In the ancient Greek world the bee symbolised the soul because they migrated in swarms. And the Roman god of love, Cupid, is often pictured with bees or being stung,” the artist explains.
