This larger-than-life flying bee is over 4 feet long and has a 6 foot wingspan! The sculpture contains 16,383 LEGO pieces and took 4 weeks to design, build, and glue. It is designed to hang from the ceiling!
Spin the bee!

The sculpture took over 160 hours to design, build, and glue by my team and I. My assistant, Ji Yoon, took my designs and spent nearly 4 weeks assembling the sculpture
Because the bee needed to be suspended in mid-air, we put a steel rod through his body and attached a small eyelet through the top of his back. But more importantly, we needed to make sure the weight was perfectly balanced! … If his head was heavier than his rear, he would hang nose-first to the ground. So we built compartments in the head and rear, designed to hold lead weights built into the sculpture.
