Spring is here and with it come two ages-old symbols of fertility – the rabbit and the egg. But since Easter comes in the springtime, these symbols are part of the Christian tradition of Easter. Either way, they’re cute and so I decided to make a LEGO bunny and some eggs.
Like the sheep I built recently, the eggs and the rabbit are both designed based on the Lowell sphere concept, approximating curved surfaces using layers of plates facing in all directions. I built the head first, then the legs, then filled in the middle of the body.
The eggs are built on the same principle – the big end is a standard Lowell sphere and the pointy end is a somewhat elongated variation of my own design. I had to do some crazy parts substitutions to make the colors work right.
