“Watchful”

Description: This is a LEGO mosaic of a Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus), built as a commission.
Inspiration: Owls are fascinating creatures with amazing hearing and vision. It was challenging to recreate the owl’s soft feathers using geometric LEGO bricks, but when viewed from a distance, the illusion is convincing.
Size: ~12,000 LEGO bricks, 50″ x 50″
Hours to build: ~100 (completed in 2020)
