(4x4) Undersea Volcanic Vent
Deep undersea vents offer nutrients to some of the world's strangest creatures.
About this creation








I've tried to capture the venting sulfuric gasses as they escape the seamount, surrounded by the classic white and red tube-worms that filter feed on the nutrient rich waters. There are a few fish this deep, mostly albino, but I had to make due with silver. I added a sea star, mostly because sea spiders aren't part of the LEGO catalgue, and the sea star is more likely than many other creatures at this depth since some can be found in the abyssal layers of the ocean to 20,000 feet (6,000 m).

It seems as this is sea week given the two stellar works by Oliver Becker and Conner R, not to mention my own addition of the Temple of Poseidon. Go check them all out.

(This build was made for my sister who loves nature, science, and the oddities of the sea.)

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Amazing rendering of a black smoker community on a mid-ocean ridge! The billowing black sulfide plumes are very convincing. And all on a 4x4!
For some reason 4x4 works really well in my head. A lot of stuff I can't translate into those big beautiful builds I can get a rendering into this format that works (most of the time).
