Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant has quite a fanbase in Asia, but this sculpture is still a little weird.

The sculpture in the photo above of what looks to be Kobe holding a basketball while wrestling with a mamba was on display at the Basketball Art Exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan. The snake also appears to be biting Kobe's Achilles, which he tore at the end of the 2012-2013 NBA season.
