Building it

This sculpture took two months to design and build.  My assistant David did a great job building it, and also came up with a brilliant design for the eagle’s eye after lots of prototypes (below).   Can you tell how it’s made?

The eye is a LEGO magnifying glass, turned upside-down, with a black circular piece behind it.  The black ring of the magnifying glass, coupled with the convex clear lens perfectly simulated the steely gaze of the American Bald Eagle.
