Tun M and Tun Siti’s LEGO Miral Unveiled at Carousell’s “Sayangi Malaysiaku” LEGO Art Exhibition in Sunway Pyramid
Kuala Lumpur, 30 August 2018 – As Malaysians celebrate the country’s 61st independence day, Carousell, Republic of Bricks (ROB) and Sunway Pyramid Mall unveiled an array of unique murals built entirely from LEGO bricks celebrating our country.
Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah’s LEGO mural is the highlight of the exhibition, beginning today to Sunday, 2 September 2018 at LG2, Central Avenue, Sunway Pyramid.
18 unique LEGO mosaics will also be on display, featuring interesting Malaysian moments, culture and sceneries, coupled with LEGO-themed activities for visitors by Carousell. LEGO fans can also connect with LEGO collectors across Malaysia on Carousell.
“The LEGO builders and fans have long traded and exchanged ideas via our platform and we in turn focus on creating authentic relationships with our communities. Naturally, Merdeka is the perfect opportunity for us to engage the LEGO fan community while celebrating 61 years of independence which highlights their creativity,” said Tang Siew Wai, Country Head of Carousell Malaysia.
Siew Wai added that hobbyists and enthusiasts could buy exclusive LEGO collections on Carousell. “To date, we have approximately 1 million LEGO listings on Carousell. This includes exquisite and scarce pieces of LEGO items to suit the user’s needs.”
“Sunway Pyramid has always been a strong supporter of the creative arts, advocating a variant of artists to display their pieces in our mall. Our collaboration with Carousell and ROB is part of our continuous efforts to offer a variety of activities to our shoppers especially on this very significant Merdeka celebration,” said Amy Hoo Ooi Mei, Senior Manager – Marketing of Sunway Pyramid.
“Matching different LEGO pieces to build this mural resembles the diversification of our culture and races living together in peace and harmony. The murals were built by artists from ROB to convey our love for our country and promote creativity with bricks. Carousell and Sunway Pyramid have been supportive partners in developing the community, and we hope that through this initiative, more will follow suit and develop their interest by joining our LEGO community on Carousell,” said Zen Chan Yang Shan, President of ROB.
A total of 166,888 pieces of LEGO bricks were used for the portraits displayed at the event, with 9,216 pieces used for Tun M and Tun Siti’s mural which was built by members of ROB.
ROB is a LEGO fan interest and networking group that focuses on LEGO projects, events and display in Malaysia. Over the years, the group has gathered LEGO hobbyists across the country to learn and share their passion. At present, the group has over 1,000 members that consist of enthusiasts from all walks of life.
