We could promise our children all the ice cream in the world not to touch something, and they still wouldn’t be able to resist the temptation of ‘the forbidden’ – and judging by this story, a trip to a LEGO expo in China proved too much for one child!
The internet has been left cringing for the Chinese artist who spent three days creating an amazing statue of Nick the Fox from Zootopia – only for a child to destroy it in a matter of mere seconds.
The artist, known only by the name Zhao, took to his Weibo social networking account to share side-by-side photos of the ‘before’ and ‘after’ of his incredible creation for the LEGO expo.
The statue, which was reportedly valued at over $15,000, stood in the exhibition for just one hour before a pair of little hands managed to demolish the whole thing into a pile of building blocks!
According to Mashable, the artist didn’t elaborate as to how the accident happened, “except to say he was heartbroken to see his hard work destroyed”.
Yikes! That will be the last time that child disobeys the ‘do not touch’ sign, we’ll bet!
