Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn

Ai Weiwei is an iconoclastic artist from China. He took this quite literally in his 1995 performance piece, Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn, captured as a series of three photographs (here in LEGO by Michael Torres). I love the interplay of four different media here - a LEGO sculpture of a set of photographs of a performance involving pottery. Now to come full circle we really need to get Michael Torres to take a photo of himself dropping his LEGO model.
