The Monkey King

The Monkey King, or Sun WuKong, famous from the Chinese story "Journey to the West." Seen in lotus position with his trademark staff.

 

This is quite a large build at 21"x40"x15" overall. I took influence from multiple Asian cultures in the design, especially with the Japanese samurai armor but with added Chinese and Korean influence.

 

Thanks to Matt Rowntree for suggesting the lotus position which ended up fitting the overall character well.
