We’re used to seeing custom LEGO builds tackle geeky subjects, but a couple of projects in recent months have pulled inspiration from mythology. We’ve seen a LEGO depiction of Homer’s The Odyssey, and now there’s this rad statue of the Monkey King from Chinese mythology. Builder Tyler Halliwell told The Brick Brothers he spent about 100 hours over two months assembling the Monkey King, and it only has about 1,500 bricks. The statue is mostly hollow so it didn’t require a ton of LEGO pieces.
Overall, the Monkey King is 40″ x 15″ x 21.”
