I was offered a unique opportunity in the beginning of April, 2001. I had been buying some blue bulk tubs at my local Toys’R’Us, when one of the people who worked there saw me buying a pile of these things, and asked what I was up to. I told her I was a brick sculptor, and she thought it would be a great idea for me to hang out in the store for a while and do a sculpture. I thought to myself “what a great opportunity!” so I said sure.
I designed this mosaic to be built on site in the store. The mosaic was made studs up. It is is 72 bricks wide and 81 bricks tall and 2 bricks thick.
