Holy Jumping Peacock Spider!

Sullivan R has constructed this charming build based on a peacock spider. In real life, the tiny spider waves its colourful back and long legs in order to entice a mate. This build has some excellent details such as the use of Rahkshi worms which represent its fangs. Minifigure hands portray delicate hairs on the spider’s extended legs. The long horn pieces on the back form the unusual curved patterns which surround a red central area, represented by a shoulder armour piece. The end result is an adorable model that hopefully won’t get eaten by its potential mate.

    Except those legs which are up in the air, which look odd (what are they? What have the legs got into? And what are they trying to tell?), this creature looks totally disgusting. Great job; kudos to the builder!
