Building it

This sculpture is over 5 feet tall and contains 46,563 LEGO pieces.  It took my assistants Jung Ah and Ji Sun over 215 hours to design and build.  Three of us spent over a week just working on the expression of the eyes.

The sculpture is built around a custom-welded metal armature, and every LEGO piece is glued one-by-one.

This sculpture will now spend the next 6 years traveling to Botanical Gardens and Arboretums around the world as part of my Nature Connects exhibit.  Check out the schedule and see if it’s visiting you soon!
