Massive Lego Man Washes Up On Beach In Japan (Photos/Video)


A giant Lego man has washed up on the shores of a beach in Japan.

The 8-foot-tall figure was found by surfer Tatsuya Hirata on Yuigahama beach in Kamakura, Japan.

According to the Huffington Post, it was dressed in blue pants and a red shirt that had the words “No Real Than You Are” printed on the front.

On the back, it had the name, “Ego Leonard,” a Dutch artist who comes from the “virtual world,” according to his website.

This is not the first time a massive Lego man has washed ashore.

In 2012, a Lego man turned up on a California beach, and a year before that, it was a Florida beach, the Global News reports.

Leonard’s bio on his website has been translated, and it states: "My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world. A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations. Lately however, my world has been flooded with fortune-hunters and people drunk with power. And many new encounters in the virtual world have triggered my curiosity about your way of life."

But Leonard's identity, and if he really is behind the works, is still unclear.

The art project has been sent around the world, at least since 2007, and no one knows which large body of water it will land on next.
