Valentine Mosaic

Back To My Misc Creations

This is a mosaic with attached models that I made for my wife for St. Valentine's Day. The main piece is a mosaic on a 32x32 baseplate, and it has two small models mounted on the front. The fig for her is fairly appropriate, though there isn't any reasonable way to do a current version of me with Lego. So my fig is supposed to be a generic geeky guy with hair like I had back when we got married.

My wife isn't a Lego nut, but she does appreciate the brick. She knows that it is a big part of my life, and I think she'll appreciate the gesture. I guess I'll find out tomorrow!

Update: 2-15-02: She loved it! I added another 6 pics of the packaging and my wife enjoying the whole thing. I also added instructions and the .mpd file.

Resources: [Instructions] [MPD file]
Note: The instructions aren't totally accurate. The archway in the instructions is a mocked-up version of the one in the real thing, the flowers are missing the leaves, the long hair has been replaced by a baseball cap, and both figs are missing their torso decoration. The instruction images here are also much lower-resolution than the ones I used for printing.
