Small world

Today was the last day of a lego exhibition at Cityplaza, Taikoo Shing. The detailed and entertaining lego models featured world landmarks, fantasy scenes and tourist attractions in Hong Kong. Here, for instance, is the ten-thousand Buddhas temple in lego:

Compare with the original:


Incidentally, at the ten-thousand Buddhas temple you can also see non-buddhist Chinese shrines, such as this one featuring a larger-than life Guan Yu statue:


and here is his lego counterpart at the exhibition (part of a special Three Kingdoms set):


Just as red in the face, and almost as fearsome!

Who is Guan Yu, you ask?

More small Hong Kong.
