Blizzard Unveils Arthas Statue In Taichung

Yesterday, at an event in Taichung, Taiwan, Blizzard Entertainment unveiled a giant bronze statue of one of its most iconic characters: Lich King, Arthas Menethil, from the Warcraft universe. The statue is located on the Calligraphy Greenway, a cultural and artistic hub built around the concepts of innovation, sustainability, recreation, and entertainment. The impressive figure stands 3.2 meters tall, 4-6 meters in length, and more than 2.1 meters wide, and weighs in at more than 1,800 kilograms. It took Taiwanese-born, Hollywood makeup artist and filmmaker, Steve Wang and his team months of planning and more than 1,000 hours of work to complete the massive piece.

Below is a video with a glimpse at how this army of talented individuals came together to bring one of Blizzard Entertainment’s most recognisable characters out of the game and into the real world.
