For my brother's wedding in Japan, I made the happy couple a LEGO sculpture. Sorry that my photography skills aren't very good.
About this creation
Yes, this is my first real brick creation in almost two years, and my first since joining MOCpages. I'm sure that there will be some who would rejoice that I've rejoined the fold, but I still plan to design digitally most of the time. At least some of the time I can now build with ABS again though.
"Far or near, my heart will be here"
The happy couple and their gift
Immediately prior to assembly
"Close comforts found under far pavilions"
For those who wanted to see more details and close ups I've included these screen shots from the original design (which is attached as building instruction) since the original is in Yokohama. Bear in mind that a few minor alterations were made to the final version either due to parts availability or to improve the structural integrity of the weaker parts.
2x4's Samurai House for his use of textured tiles in making Japanese roofs.
Glory Forever's Temple of Dawn for his cool black and brown pillars.
Li Li's Chinese Garden for the idea of making an Asian style pavilion in the first place.
Bricks used: 665
it s a beautiful piece! but, since you won t have real parts left to show me afterwards, tell him to leave it here, and you ll send another one next year, if it still works between them, THEN, it s ok you deprive us of your talents with real bricks...lol! seriously, very well done, I don t think the pics are bad, I think there should be a couple more, maybe close ups, good luck to them in japan!!!
