You may have seen some of these oversized bricks in some of the LEGO company's official displays and parks. They've also become fairly popular for amateur builders to attempt. At one point the LEGO company actually offered a generic scaled-up minifig for sale, but most of the builders who have tried similar things have gone with different scales for their scaled-up bricks and minifigs. This particular set is ten times regular size. The chef in particular features some great details and appears to be jointed! The use of slopes to help get some of the finer details might be a bit odd for a sculpture, but it works perfectly here.
