This is the third 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 and toucan, this has an internal steel frame. It bolts into the base of the stem, and can be mounted from there. The flower is about 31″ in diameter.

My favorite part of this build was detailing the pistil of the hibiscus.

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!
