A young Chinese boy has accidentally broke a $20,000 Lego sculpture — which took three painstaking days and nights to put together — crashing down, just an hour after it was put on public display.
The 1.8-metre sculpture of Nick Wilde, a character from the Disney film Zootopia, was on display at the Lego Expo in Ningbo, China, when the incident occurred, an hour into the opening day of the exhibit.
It took the artist, known as Zhao, three days and nights to construct the figure — and, according to local media, it was worth more than 100,000 yuan ($AU20, 000).
He said he had to rush to finish the sculpture in time for the exhibit's opening.
"I took off some parts and put some on, over and over again, especially the eyes," Zhao said, according to the Chinese tabloid Global Times.
