LEGO Monarch Butterfly

This sculpture was one of three commissioned by the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford, IL for their Bricktober event. I did a live build of the butterfly Oct 26-27 at the Conservatory.


The butterfly body houses the main steel frame which six steel rods fit through to support the wings. The frame is also threaded for a stand or feet. The wingspan is about 38".


The proboscis is made from a monkey tail which only appeared in the set 4094 Motor Movers.
