Lion created using voxels

Similar to a pixel, a voxel is the smallest distinguishable cube in a three-dimensional image. For example, those familiar with the game Minecraft can think of each of the "blocks" used to create the terrain as a voxel. In the picture is an example of a three-dimensional image of a lion created using different color voxels.
