China is Taking Sculpture To Epic Levels

Giant statue of Guan Yu completed in Hubei looks like an epic asset from some crazy Asian online game.

China likes its monuments big, like ridiculous big. The newest statue of the ancient Chinese warrior/god Guan Yu has in Jingzhou city, Hubei province, just proves this point. It’s situated in the Jingzhou’s Guan Yu Park. The sculpture is 48 meters tall, plus there’s a 10-meter-tall pedestal. 4,000 strips of bronze have been glued over the 1,320 ton god. He carries an intimidating axe-like weapon “Green Dragon Crescent Blade”, which weighs 136 tons. The pedestal looks like an ancient warship. Plus there’s going to be an 8,000 square meter Guan Yu Museum inside.

The most impressive thing about this structure is its size. It’s a monumental work, which you’d expect to see in a videogame, but not in real life. We’re almost certain that this fantastic project will work as a great inspiration to game artists who want to build truly epic environments.
