Monarch Butterfly

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.

Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens Live Build Event

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!
