This is the second of three sculptures commissioned by the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford, IL for their Bricktober event. I did a live build of the butterfly Oct 26-27 at the Conservatory.
Like the butterfly, this has an internal steel frame. It bolts into the bottom frame on which the feet rest. The bird is about 31″ from bill to tail.
I really enjoyed working on the legs and feet. Toco toucans have iridescent legs, and I think the mixture of dark grey and sand blue gets the effect across. I don’t get to use sand blue enough, and luckily I was able to build this with the limited palette available.
This sculpture was one of three commissioned by the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford, IL for their Bricktober event. I did a live build of the butterfly Oct 26-27 at the Conservatory.
The butterfly body houses the main steel frame which six steel rods fit through to support the wings. The frame is also threaded for a stand or feet. The wingspan is about 38″.
The proboscis is made from a monkey tail which only appeared in the set 4094 Motor Movers.
I’ll be at the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens this weekend for a live build event. I’ll be building a LEGO butterfly from 10:00am-3:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
I also built two more sculptures for the Conservatory, which are already on site but will be making their debut here in the next few days.
The Conservatory is located at 1354 N. 2nd St. Rockford, IL 61107. Visit their website for more info and for tickets!
This is a commissioned kit I made for the Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens. It will be sold at the NCG gift shop during the month of October, during which I’ll also be doing a live build event (Oct 26-27)!

This trophy was built for BrickPirate’s L13 Special Edition n°7 Contest a few months ago. Congrats to 6kyubi6 for taking it home! It’s based off my Mutant Ant.
