Oliphaunt from Lord of the Rings comes to life in kinetic LEGO sculpture

The enormous, elephant-like oliphaunts (also known as Mûmakil to their Haradrim riders) wowed the hobbits Sam and Frodo as they made their way through Ithilien. Impressive as they may have been in the books and movies, this LEGO sculpture by Marcin Otreba adds movement to his bricks and brings the creature to life.

Marcin’s LEGO Oliphaunt wears red war paint and carries a war tower on its back. All of the legs move when Marcin winds a crank in the base.
