The artists of Minecraft have struck yet again, with another amazing build, this time with a recreation of themselves (actually their physical real-world self), as a giant statue holding a pickaxe up. Quite an interesting way to create a self-portrait of sorts!
So far we’ve seen some well-done builds, including the recreation of a DOOM poster, Africa’s Toto, Metallica’s Master of Planets album cover, actually playable games like Snake game, Valorant, and Super Mario, locations like SpongeBob SquarePants’ Krusty Krab, abandoned and urban cities, the fictional planet of Gallifrey, Bloodborne’s Yharnam, One Piece’ Onigashima, the Milky Way which got featured on an official Minecraft video and even more.

There have also been some great scaled builds, like the statues of Vaporeon and Lugia. Today we have yet another one in the form of a player who built their statue in the blocky world of Minecraft. And to make it even more impressive, the whole project was completed in survival.
The creator of this, a YouTuber, documented the whole process. They first used PolyCam to figure out which blocks they would have to use and how. After this they worked on collecting the thousands of blocks required and starting working on the statue. It took them quite a while and ended up being 192 blocks tall!
And considering a Minecraft block is considered to be a meter tall, which is taller than the World’s Largest Statue (although that exists in real life and took a lot more time and resources). And at the end of it all, we have an epic-looking build, complete with a gamer hoodie and a pickaxe.
