Saving the cultures we destroyed...
About this creation
LIU-Napu Art Museum


The Ludgonian Industrial Union is committed to preserving the cultural treasures we have stolen and pillaged from across the universe. In order to accomplish this, the LIU has built one of the universe's largest art museums. Join us today, as we give you a brief tour of Napu Art Museum.



The Napu Art Museum, located on the planet Lux Prime, exhibits nearly one hundred thousand pieces of art over one million square feet.




Admission is free to all LIU Elite Citizens. Sub-Elite citizens and out of galaxy tourists must pay a small fee to enter.




Unlike many galleries and museums, pictures are encouraged here at Napu Art Museum. For an additional fee, any guest can bring a camera with them.




Please, come inside.




"Welcome to Napu Art Museumís information booth. My name is Terry. Once you pay your admission fee, I'd be glad to assist you."




"Ah, there we go. Our records indicate that you are a new guest. Would you like me to assign you a virtual tour guide? You would? Alright. An additional fee has been charged to your credit card. Thank you."




"Hello. I am VIG, a virtual interactive guide. Sorry guest, I can't shake your hand. I am just a hologram. But, I will be glad to show you some of the museum. Shall we begin? OK. I must warn you though, I will only be available in the audio mode in the following gallery. My technology is known to cause damage to the paintings."


"Welcome to Painting Gallery Number One. This gallery holds eight paintings. Would you like to hear about each painting? You would? OK."


"The painting on the left, known as the Moonlight Mansion, was painted by sixth grader Tommy Jordan. Critics panned the piece for being the simple work of a child, but their stark reviews and the ensuing controversy, propelled this work to the top of many art circles. Today, the painting is worth approximately two million dollars.

The painting on the right is an abstract piece by artist Manu Pisalis. He described the piece as a representation of the encroachment of technology on nature. Personally, I just see a lettuce sandwich with pickles and ketchup, but to each his own."




"Here, on the left, we see a portrait of Hugar the Raunchy. Hugar, known as a brutal womanizer, commissioned this portrait days before the LIU invaded and captured his planet. Young Cyclopian college students really admire Hugar, and they love to have their picture taken next to the painting.

On the right, we have the painting 'Lightning Strikes'. It is generally regarded as the biggest waste of canvas ever."




"On to the next part of the gallery."




"Let me just take this time to remind all of you that the red lines on the floor are not to be crossed. Unfortunately, some of our guests have no respect for art.

Now, this painting on the left, is known as the 'Ultimate Eye'. Basically, it's just a Taijitu, the symbol for Yin and Yang.

On the right, we see the painting "Xhtug". To be honest, no one really knows what it is, but I see Space Invaders."




"Please ignore the gallery security, he is not a piece of art, although I wouldn't tell him that.

Anyway, on the left, we have 'Scary Clown Face' painted by Bozo the Destroyer.

And, on the right, we have a 'A Tree' by an unknown artist. There's just not much else to say about that."




"Ah, I can finally materialize. We are now in one of the sculpture galleries."




"This piece, stolen from the Fihar Empire after the Beef Wars, depicts a father trying to catch his wayward son. Unfortunately, the son denies his father's help by removing his own hands. Actually, this one was dropped a few times while in route to the museum, so we can't be too sure about that whole hand thing."




"This piece, known as the 'Search for Color', depicts this man's quest to find enlightenment, but his failure to see what he has just under his feet."




"This next piece was found at a dig site on the planet Vespertilio. The Vespertilions were extinct long before our arrival, and now we see why. Their planet was full of large carnivorous bats. An ancient sculptor portrayed his fears in this set of statues."





"Well, I'm sorry folks, but your visitor fee has expired. Please come again when you have more money. Thank you for joining us."



Note: No, the Napu Art Museum will not return your empire's priceless pieces of art. We stole them fair and square. So stop begging. We will however sell them to you with massive mark ups.

Hey I worked up such an appetite walking around the galleries, I was looking forward to the "gala dinner" that was promised what happened? I was looking forward to going to the gift shop to buy a post card and couldn't find it!

Before Lego, my hobby was to paint and draw, mainly abstract art, so this post was a real pleasure to look at, there is all I love here : Lego, art and humour ! I won't say once again it's hilarious, you know that :-) But if one day, Lego is truly recognized as an art, you'll be considered as one of the founding father of this art (and the good point is that you don't take it too seriously, even if the results are above awesome). Once again congratulations, hope you'll never stop MOCing !!!

Great stuff, as always, Emp! I can only dream that when the LIU finally comes to earth to blow the snot out of us, that my work will hang in such a prestigious establishment!

You built it for humor, but the works of art here ARE works of art on their own! I know it's all a load of crock, but some of those descriptions you had (especially the enlightenment one) actually made you think for a second (and let me tell you just how painfull "thinking" was). Nice job sneaking ShannO in there too. hehehe Great work Emperor! Can't wait for the next one!

Amazing commentary as always, and great idea with the whole Stolen Artwork thing. I mean it's not like we do that here on Earth do we *cough* Rosetta Stone *cough*. Great job =)

Funny writing, and as always, superior build. I particularly loved the red 'stay behind' line on the floor; it's those tiny details that always put you over the top. The 'bat-creature' statue looks like Stitch, from Lilo and Stitch, IMHO.~H

For being such great art, the tour guide doesn't seem too enthusiastic. Shouldn't he have been programmed with tons of LIU propoganda?

Oh come on! I've been meaning to do something like this for MONTHS! Ah well, proves I should always get to work on ideas immediately. The sculptures are pretty nice and the entrance reminds me of one of the Chicago gallery entrances. The cheese slope work is quite neat too, though I imagine it couldn't have been too difficult. Nice build(s?). Good day

Nice artwork, creative use of SNOTwork. You just gotta love it how technology develops to the point of holography, but bad side effects on artwork. Like why can't we put forks in the microwave yet, or take cold medicine when we've been drinking?...
