A massive LEGO model of Mount Rushmore will be featured at the BrickUniverse LEGO Convention next month.

Chicago-based LEGO artist Rocco Buttliere built the masterpiece with over 22,000 LEGO bricks.

The incredible creation took over 400 hours, over the course of eight weeks, to design, and roughly 150 hours to build.

In his 10 years of professional LEGO building, Buttliere says his Mount Rushmore creation was the hardest to design and build yet.  It will be on display with many other large-scale LEGO displays at BrickUniverse.

Rocco Buttliere is considered by many to be one of the best LEGO artists in the world. His LEGO creations have been featured in multiple books and have won awards domestically and internationally.

Rocco Buttliere’s LEGO work has been exhibited throughout the United States, as well as internationally in England, Scotland, Italy, Denmark, Norway, and The Netherlands.

With his latest Mount Rushmore creation, he will have over 50 LEGO world landmarks and skyscrapers on display at BrickUniverse.
