2011 has been quite a year. The Occupy protests. Osama bin Laden's death at the hands of American soldiers. William and Kate's wedding. The Libyan uprising and the killing of Moammar Gadhafi. The death of Steve Jobs. It can be hard to keep it all straight.
So thank goodness the Guardian has asked members of their Flickr group to recreate many of the major events of this year... out of Lego. Some of the images - like the Steve Jobs tribute - are fittingly simple. Others involve hundreds of figures and complex architecture. But all of them make for a playful way of remembering the year that was.
