A Chinese Lego artist named Zhao spent three days building a large Lego statue of Nick the fox from Zootopia for a Lego Expo in Ningbo, China. On Sunday, a kid totally destroyed it just hours after the exhibit opened to the public. Sadly, it's not exactly a surprising fate for a giant Lego sculpture of a character from a very popular kids' movie. What is surprising is that the artist was actually pretty cool about it.

Here are some pics of the statue from Zhao's account on the Chinese social network Weibo:

And here it is after being toppled over like a game of Jenga:

The kid's parents publicly apologized for the incident, and Zhao declined the compensation they offered him, because he understood it was an accident. He said exhibit employees were as much to blame for not keeping a better eye on the exhibits. Hopefully, Zhao gets commissioned for some future Lego work in places with kid-proof security (one can dare to dream).
