Heart Pedestal

Post by legorevolution on Sat Aug 14, 2010 11:02 pm

I've been planning, buying pieces, and building this sculpture for the majority of the last half of the summer. I'm giving it to my girlfriend as a going away to college present. Traditional Greco-Roman architecture played a big inspiration for the design of the pedestal for the heart. Inscribed on the 4 sides is the word Eros which was the Greek god of sexual beauty; it also means love. Razz Frogs are a little inside joke of ours too so they worked out perfectly.

I like the base, though.

Very nice! IMO some color would have been nice in the gray area, but otherwise very cool. Smile

I'd say he used the arch piece, then just stuck some 2x1 with cheeses on them in there. But LRV! Giving away LEGO? Hola Wow!

Razz I'm kidding. This is a great MOC, I bet she loves it. Instead of buying pieces, waiting.... Couldn't you have just gone to Hallmark, and saved some cash for college? Razz Or are you Mr. Unique?

The lack of colour on the base makes the heart stand out and look brighter. Smile

I always learned that Eros was the god of love, and Aphrodite(Eros's mother) was the goddess of love and beauty. I may be wrong, though.


This is actually really awesome. The heart itself is worthy to post! Smile

Eros is just a fancy-shmancy word for the dude in diapers: Cupid.

Agreed. Commented on Flickr, but I think this is both very sweet and very well built. You knew what you want to build and in what style, and you did it, and it was for a great cause.
