Child destroys $15,000 LEGO statue an hour after exhibit opens

An artist in China spent three days putting together a $15,000 LEGO sculpture, only to see a little boy smash it to pieces an hour after it went on display.

The artist, known as Zhao, spent three long days and nights painstakingly building the statue of Zootopia character Nick Wilde from thousands of LEGO bricks. He unveiled his work at the LEGO Expo in Ningbo, a city just south of Shanghai.

Unfortunately, a little boy got too excited, went under the security ropes, and pushed over the sculpture.

Zhao, despite being heartbroken over the incident, was quite the good guy. The parents of the boy offered compensation but the artist refused, saying the child couldn’t have known it was bad to touch the artwork.

Wow. Talk about an interactive exhibit!
