Gigantic LEGO Butterfly

342

This LEGO model of a Monarch butterfly is amazingly detailed and quite beautiful.

What the first photo may not make obvious though is the scale of this model which is part of an exhibition that artist Sean Kenney is touring around the US. The model is made up of some 60,000 LEGO bricks and the butterfly's wingspan is approximately 8 feet across.

The build photos give a better sense of the immense scale of this thing.
