Every once in a while you come across something that surprises you. In this case that something is called Object-4, and it is from uran120. This Lego MOC is a bit more complicated than it looks. It is a bit subtle, but right around the mouth the direction of studs change. It helps give this a smoother appearance and a nice flat top. This build is similar to the deeply weird Face Coin Bank. You can find those over here. Weird Lego faces are certainly an interesting theme. I welcome more. I think.

Vinochope is a French Wine and Beer Bar founded in 2013. Recently, Lego builder J.B.F, had an exhibition at the bar. To mark the occasion they built their logo out of Lego.
