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 Koi fish, installed in a real lake, is built out of 1,937 LEGO bricks set next to five giant lily pads, a frog and a water lily (lotus bloom). See more photos of the frog and the lily pads.
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!
The entire 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.
I'm so glad you made this!Seriously,the Koi is one of my favorite fish species,very marvelous yet I kove the close up pictures on it as they help me observe the techniques and the way you built this.Probably my favorite model coming from you!
I like it

How ironic that I'm listening to a Japanese song. This would have been even better if you had uploaded this on May 5th, but It's great nonetheless.
