If the larger versions of the LEGO Group’s out-of-this-world artwork seem too difficult to recreate, then no need to worry as instructions for a smaller iteration are now online.
A set of huge LEGO mosaics inspired by real images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope were recently revealed to be shown off in LEGO stores, with builders able to replicate them for themselves. However, with just how big these models are, some may have been put off by the variety of colours and pieces used.
To remedy this, a more approachable model has now been designed with instructions uploaded to the official online store’s Go Beyond campaign page. You can download the PDF for yourself here with the final product measuring about 13 studs wide and tall.
Judging by the design, it seems to be a downsized version of the Pillars of Creation, a formation located just 7,000 light-years from Earth. Despite the size, it still manages to retain the shape of each pillar as well as the shining stars and flares in the background and foreground.
To follow the instructions, it might be wise to get as many round tiles together as possible, but if you want to prepare, then a parts list is available on the last page of the PDF.
You could even go the extra mile and create both sizes, one for the desk and one for your wall. It’s a pretty good decoration idea for fans of the cosmos. The LEGO Group has seemingly taken to the idea of free instructions, with alternate builds for some LEGO Art sets also made available recently.
