  1. I totally thought it was Chinese when I first looked at it! ๐Ÿ™‚ This seems like the original inspiration of 8-bit pixel art.

    1. It is definitely of Chinese inspiration, it’s also nicknamed “The Big Chinese” (the thing is nine meters tall). And yes, it predates 8-bit pixel art by about 120/130 years ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Yep!!! Saw your wiki link and it made so much sense. Gotta visit Vienna soon!๐Ÿ™
