In China, A Giant Panda Statue With Its Own Iron Man Suit


As if pandas weren’t cool enough! In Shenyang, China, local artist Bi Heng has put up a 9-metre high, 7-metre wide panda statue that would give Iron Man a run for his money. Called ‘Iron Panda’, the sculpture features a towering panda wearing a Chinese version of Tony Stark’s famous high-powered suit of armour. Instead of just lounging around acting all cute like other pandas, this one proudly poses in a fighting stance ready to blast enemies with its yin-yang beams.
