Vanishing Eden
About this creation
My second entry for the MOCathalon 2012

Perpetual Motion Squad

23. Vanishing Eden
Create a MOC that touches on environmental consciousness. Pick a life form or location from anywhere in the world that is threatened, and do a MOC that raises awareness.

I decided not to concentrate on one endangered species, I thought I'd build a natural scene displaying all the flora that this world is losing by the day.

The Panda takes main stage but I think it is also important to make the point that it's not just fauna that is endangered, it's flora that is also at risk.









Finally I had inspiration for the Panda with Pistols from Julien D'andon's BAD PANDA RECORDS artwork. A lot of people have been led to believe this panda was created by the infamous graffiti artist Banksy (including myself) until I did a bit of research and found out who the actual creator was.



Hope you all like it, I really enjoyed building this and hopefully Pandas and all the endangered natural beauty will be around for our future generations to enjoy.

Love the panda (though I must admit I like the gun-weilding version better!) and the variety you've acheived on the flora too. Great stuff and good luck with your scores.

Loving Ape's rant... all of which is true and makes the Panda a curious emblem for conservation. Still, it's the most important issue we all face. Nice build.

Quoting the bourbonbrick Brilliant (I hoped there would be a stop-motion of the panda dancing =P).But plants and fauna means plants and animals so you should have said "flora and fauna" or "plants and animals" it would have made the writing flow better.(Oh dear I'm developing corectpeoplonline syndrome :O). ~Bourbon
Yeah a dancing Panda would be fun! Thank you for your correction, I have edited accordingly. You sound like my mother ;-)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Awesome build mate. I am loving the Panda especially with the guns. The scenery is also wonderfully textured. Great all around job. I think if pandas had guns then we might all be the endangered ones. ;) Good luck
Haha Pandas don't have a bad bone in their body, oh wait, that's not right lol

Lovely work; beautiful tree and great stud-ly building. Normally I'm in favor of protecting any animal or habitat, endangered or otherwise, but I take exception to pandas. They're bears, that eat ONE type of plant. BEARS! And said plant is green, yet they are black and white. And they have s_x (blanked for the censors!) roughly once every 30 years. They don't seem to want to survive. Anyway, panda-rant aside, 5 stars
