After building a tiny 8-inch xylophone for my new book Amazing ABC, I desperately wanted to create a giant version. It was so colorful and fun looking that I wanted to feel like a tiny person surrounded by a giant toy.
Our eyes are funny with color: sometimes you can put one color next to another and it makes the color look completely different. In this case, I was particularly happy with how the LEGO "Dark Red" color looks like purple when it's placed next to blue.
The sculpture is 6 feet long, contains over 13,500 LEGO pieces, and sounds absolutely terrible.
Amazing build! I love all the different colors that you used and it truly is amazing how that dark red looks like purple next to blue...absolutely genius! And I can barely tell that the mini one (or more like life sized one) is made out of Lego. Such a simple object made into a great sculpture. 5/5! :) - J
