The Year of the Pig

Zhu Bajie the Pig enjoys a slap-up celebratory meal for the Chinese New Year!

 

Bio-Cup 2018 Round 2 Entry

- Theme: Holidays

- Subtheme: Chinese New Year

 

The judges weren't kidding when they said later rounds would increase in difficulty! This round proved to be a real challenge: I wanted to build something that isn't stereotypically associated with Chinese New Year (Fireworks, the Lion Dance, etc.) and aimed to be unique.

 

A main feature of the celebration is eating food with family, so I wanted to capture that spirit by recreating some dishes with Lego and the ones who'd enjoy the food the most. Noting that next year's zodiac is the Pig, the association of a big pig who loves food seemed like a natural choice!

 

The dishes and decorations included are (clockwise from top left): Bamboo shoots, Steamed dumplings, Krana & banana salad, Shadow Slug Surprise, Rice balls, Kraata chicken stew.
