My interest in Norse Mythology was recently rekindled by Neil Gaiman’s extremely approachable (and funny!) book titled “Norse Mythology” (Bookshop, Amazon). And when considering an alternative build of Lego’s Creator 3-in-1 31143 Bird House my mind was drawn to the mythical monsters from those Norse myths.
I spent a few hours just playing with the parts in Stud.io and familiarizing myself with the inventory. There are quite a number of interesting parts but I found myself wishing there was a bit more variety in the types of clip pieces for the scenes I was making.
After playing with the parts I finally got inspired by the birds and bees theme of the kit and built three scenes from the “Mead of Poetry” story. If you aren’t familiar with the story I recommend you checkout the book above but there is a less entertaining overview on Wikipedia.
