Artist and toy sculptor Jason Freeny creates delightfully morbid dissections of toys and other pop culture characters, most famously Super Mario and the Stay-Puft Marshmellow Man. His most recent creation is this triptych of three 18″ tall lego men who have been cut to reveal their mysterious, Lego anatomy.
