"Well there's yer money, Harry! Gringotts the wizard bank. Ain't no safer place, not one. Except perhaps Hogwarts."
My sister introduced me to the magical world created by JK Rowling. I don't have many memories of reading any other book series, but I absolutely remember reading the Harry Potter books for the first time! The series has been given a lot of love in the LEGO community this year, especially thanks to the Harry's Magical Journey project. Fellow builder and friend Jared has created a beautiful replica of Gringotts, the famous bank in Diagon Alley. Obviously, a main attraction of this build is the well-designed dragon. Before I talk about that, let's take a minute to admire the building itself. Jared created a very unique roof design for this building, and the way he built the walls is, quite literally, simply fantastic. Moreover the columns in the front, a main point of interest for the building, are recreated so well. Now let's talk about that dragon...man. What a work of art as well! I included Jared's second photo of the back of the dragon below, just so more details of this wonderful LEGO creature are revealed. All in all, this is an amazing creation that I was fortunate enough to see for the "unveiling" at BrickFair Virginia. Looking forward to seeing more Harry Potter creations from you in the future, Jared!
