The 9.7-meter-high robot, designed by a college student, is made of steel bars, PVC plastics and lumber. Guan Yu was a general serving under the warlord Liu Bei during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and the Three Kingdoms period (AD 220-280). He is respected as a symbol of loyalty and worshipped as the god of war in China.
