Photo of Xylophone
72 x 36 x 10"        13,500 LEGO elements.        Completed August 18, 2012




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.
