Color mosaic of "San Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight" by Claude Monet 144x96 lego bricks.
About this creation
This is the first large scale color mosaic i have done. This is a 144 x 96 brick (3 x 2 extra large baseplate, 30 x 45 inches, 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 feet) mosaic of Monet's San Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight.
The actual art is featured in 1999's Thomas Crown Affair and is supposedly worth "...over 100 million bucks." Now, if this Lego mosaic was worth that much I would be set!
I planned this out for a while and it took me a few months from start to finish, but that is just because my fingers needed a break.
I used black, white, dark bluish gray, light bluish gray, orange, medium blue, blue, green, red, and yellow.
I need to get some better pics, but here are a few.
Micah, this is a great piece. You've outdone yourself here. Great color, and it really pops out.
You need to find something to brace it from behind though, my friend, it looks like it's buckling (common ocurrence with that much weight!
