“Q Confucius No.2” by Chinese artist Zhang Huan is a massive, life-like statue of Confucius. Crafted from steel, silicone, carbon fiber, and acrylic, the statue is animatronic—its chest rises and falls to simulate breathing. The statue is part of Zhang Huan’s “Q Confucius” exhibition at the Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai. “Q Confucius” is open through January 29, 2012.
