In The Shadow Of The Minecraft Colossus

In The Shadow of the Minecraft Colossus

Oh. Um... hi. Colossi: giant statues in the real world, gargantuan creatures in fiction. They terrify and inspire awe, even (especially) when they're painstakingly built by hand in Minecraft.

This particular colossus was built by PlanetMinecraft's Divici, who's otherwise known for his anime- and LOTR-related builds, over a two-week period. He actually made two versions of the colossus, with the first one called the Harmony Giant:

and the second one called the Supremacy Giant, which has giant turrets attached to it and is missing its horns. It's also found on a winter map, frozen in the same pose as the Harmony Giant, which makes me think it's the corpse of the Harmony Giant, but converted into a fortress of some kind. Sad.

    I think I can safely say, after years and years of seeing this kind of stuff, and knowing the mods and tools available, that seeing giant 'hand crated' stuff in Minecraft has officially lost it's shine.

    Call me cynical, but I think people have seen almost anything and everything you can imagine - and the spectacle has shifted from awe-inspiring to a case of "Oh, Neat." and scrolling to the next thing.
