#572 Favourite Brick Friday: 21098pb01 Minecraft Wolf Head
Minecraft is a LEGO theme that has yielded many uniquely useful pieces; but today we'll be looking at one the most specialised; the wolf head.
You might have wondered how it could ever be useful to your MOCs; well Jonas Kramm experimented with it and found a use for the pieces. When positioned backwards, the moulding of the piece is shown and can actually be utilised to create a detailed pattern, used for his "Shrine of Nature" MOC: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legols/46340622251/in/dateposted/
Just goes to show that almost every piece has a hidden use, as its application here is stunning.
Here is the piece on Bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=21098pb01&name=Creature%20Head%20Pixelated%20with%20Pixelated%20Face%20and%20Black%20and%20White%20Eyes%20Pattern%20(Minecraft%20Wolf)&category=%5BAnimal,%20Body%20Part%5D#T=P&C=86
