Seeing the original Karate Kid as, um, a kid, I was amazed that there were little trees that needed to be cut with little scissors. Those trees, of course, are bonsai trees.

Via botanical artist Makoto Azuma, come these bonsai trees made out of LEGO. All that's missing are little LEGO clippers!

As website Spoon Tamago points out, the attention to detail, from the leaves to the mossy ground, show that Azuma's attention to detail isn't only evident in real bonsai trees, but brick ones, too.
