24 x 42 x 64"        37,497 LEGO elements.        Completed May 8, 2012
Come visit! This sculpture and 26 others are touring the U.S. now through 2014. Over 25 larger-than-life sculptures created with nearly half a million LEGO pieces! Read more and come visit!

This life-size gardener was built with 37,497 LEGO pieces and is over 6 feet tall and took 300 hours to design and build together with my team of assistants.

The sculpture was installed in April 2012 at Reiman Gardens in Iowa as part of my traveling exhibition, Nature Connects. In October 2012 it will travel to it's next location, so stay tuned for updates!

Building it

The sculpture took over 300 hours to design and build by my team and I. Each piece is glued one-by-one and a steel armature helps keep the sculpture secured to the ground.

The sculpture was assembled in my New York City art studio, then custom-crated in museum-quality exhibition crates for my new show, Nature Connects, which is currently touring the United States.
