The best kind of exhibitions are the ones that encourage the visitors to interact with the works on display, but at a recent LEGO Expo in Ningbo, China, one boy may have taken that interaction a little too far when he accidentally pushed over a $15,000 LEGO sculpture made by artist Zhao.
The statue was of a giant fox figurine called Nick Wilde from Zootopia and took Zhao a total of three days and nights to build, meticulously piecing each of the thousands of bricks together to create the life-sized character in LEGO form, but just an hour into the exhibition disaster struck.
The boy had climbed underneath security ropes in order to take a closer look before getting a little too close and knocking the statue over. The parents of the boy offered to compensate Zhao but he refused and accepted that it was simply an accident.
