Bumble Bee Sculpture

Name of Model: Bumble Bee
Created by: Nathan Sawaya
Found at:
Those of you who follow the gossip rags probably heard earlier this week that a certain celebrity commissioned a LEGO® sculpture for his bride. It turns out that that story is completely true, and E! Online has confirmed it with Nathan Sawaya, who built this sculpture, which will be delivered to the newlyweds early next month. The bee looks adorable and cartoonish, but I'm enjoying the construction more than anything - it's built at a 45 degree angle instead of being built straight. This makes it much easier to have the two wings be flat and sturdy, and also gives the bee's body an enhanced rounding effect. I do hope that he made sure that the bride actually likes LEGO before he spent the money!
