Marc Chagall's La Mariée in LEGO
I made this full-sized version of Marc Chagall's La Mariée as a marriage proposal gift. It uses some 8,700 pieces, mostly 1x1 plates. I built it vertically so that there's more pixel resolution than a flat base plate. I also used transparent parts, most noticeable on the goat head, as an experiment to add a few more colors to the palette. I think it works, and the clear parts add a jewel-like quality as well.
The above image shows the work in progress. Those are my socks; I stood on the table to get this shot.
As seen above, Rhonda and I put the mosaic on display at our wedding. The framing was done by Wholesale Art & Framing and they did a fantastic job.

At right, the mosaic can be seen behind me on the wall. The staff of Crepeville was kind enough to let me hang the mosaic in their restaurant so I could surprise my sweetie and propose to her at the same time.
