Rest your weary feet by mrballoonatic Rest your weary feet by mrballoonatic
I helped to construct this at my first Balloon event with two other guys for a competition, it took us 17 hours to complete with the 3 of us working like the clappers

He is made entirely out of Qualatex brand balloons

When I first looked at Rest your weary feet by =mrballoonatic I thought it was a knitted piece work until I saw the details of the note and the enlarged photo. The dedication and amount of time that must have gone into creating this piece as well as assembling it is staggering. ( Suggested by ChimeraDragonfang and Featured by Thebuild )
