Fox
About this creation
Come visit! This sculpture and 26 others are touring the U.S. now through 2014. Over 25 larger-than-life sculptures created with nearly half a million LEGO pieces! Read more and come visit!




This giant sculpture of a fox is nearly 6 feet long and contains 17,547 LEGO pieces. He was built together with a giant rabbit, cunningly stalking the poor little fellow down.






The sculpture was installed in April 2012 at Reiman Gardens in Iowa as part of my traveling exhibition, Nature Connects. In October 2012 it will travel to it's next location, so stay tuned for updates!




Did you notice the evil little glint in his eyes?

Building it

The entire sculpture contains 17,547 LEGO pieces and took over 200 hours to design and build together with my team. He is so big that we ran out of orange bricks halfway through the project and had to set him aside for weeks while we bought more and waited for them to arrive! (Yes, even I run out of bricks!) :)



The sculpture is built around a steel frame to secure it to the ground and help withstand overly curious visitors and extreme weather. Ji Yoon, above, did most of the construction of this sculpture, and my assistant Jung Ah, below, did most of the design.



The sculpture was assembled in my New York City art studio, then custom-crated in museum-quality exhibition crates for my new show, Nature Connects, which is currently touring the United States.

What is the piece that you used for the eyes? I was really curious about that. That eye is a real masterpiece.

Had a fellow of this sort steal eleven of our chickens a few weeks ago. I much prefer to see him in Lego form than in the flesh. Nice job!

Have you thought about outsourcing to India¿? I hear that talent is tops and the wages dirt low! ;-)

you had great flair to chose this stance for the fox, it really looks alive somehow, as it s gorgeous! it s hard to find a favorite in your new 'collection' but, the fox and bee are my personnal favs! it s surprising that YOU are short of elements, after seeing your collection, and storing system, experience, it goes to show how hard it is to estimate how much it takes to produce a piece, can we ever have enough? lol!
