This giant creepy corn spider hangs from the ceiling, designed to look like it’s descending from its spun web. The sculpture is over 5 feet tall, contains 16,492 LEGO pieces, and took 135 hours to construct.
This creepy guy took 135 hours to design and construct. He was designed in such a way that the legs opportunistically cross each other to reduce the chance that they would break over time. The sculpture has a custom-welded metal armature that connects with a hook at the top so it can be hung from the ceiling.
My assistant Evan, below, built two copies of this sculpture (so, 270 hours then!). He fabricated a custom wood jig to sit the sculpture on while he built it, since it does not have a flat bottom.
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!
I thought it would make a most intriguing hat, but instead it ate my brain.
