Kid destroys $15,000 LEGO sculpture an hour after new exhibit opens

https://www.yahoo.com/news/kid-destroys-15-000-lego-065937181.html





Children might be small in stature, but let's be honest, they can be rather destructive when left to their own devices. Such is the case with a young Chinese boy, who single-handedly pushed over a giant fox figurine of Nick from Zootopia on Sunday at the LEGO Expo in Ningbo, China.

It so happened that it was the first day of the exhibition and the display had been open to the public for no more than an hour when the incident occurred. According to Zhao, the artist who spent three days and nights painstakingly piecing together the figurine, the parents were very apologetic over the mishap.

The LEGO figurine is said to cost more than 100,000 yuan ($15,170). Zhao declined compensation as he insisted the child had not meant to break the figurine. The artist went on to post pictures of the broken figurine on his Weibo account, but did not elaborate about what had happened except to say he was heartbroken to see his hard work destroyed.

This LEGO fiasco is a far cry from another incident involving children, which took place on May 17, at the Shanghai Museum of Glass. Two young boys were caught on security cameras entering a restricted display area and breaking off the wings of a glass angel sculpture by Chinese artist, Shelly Xue. The boys were chaperoned by two adults who not only stood by and watched the boys wreak havoc, but also whipped out their phones to film the boys. After the footage of the glass incident went viral, netizens called for parents to keep their children in check and also for galleries to ban children from entering.
