That beautiful, beautiful bonfire. Dark Souls players know it well -- it's a symbol of salvation, of help. Or, it's just a spawn point. Still, it's iconic and now it's a collectible statue!
"The Bonfire holds many sacred and important meanings in the Dark Souls series," reads the official statue's description. "We are excited to present this monumental fire as a 1/6 scale statue. No detail was left uncaptured.The burnt bones buried in ashes and the coiled sword were traditionally sculpted in clay by Shinya Akao. The complex surging flame was digitally sculpted by YU-KI.
"As a surprising feature, the flame is lit by inserting the coiled sword into the earth just like in the video game scene. The details really shine from within, lighted by a special flickering LED."
For those new to the Dark Souls franchise, these are more than just spawn points. The bonfires also act as a health and Estus replenishment system that is vital for a game as unforgiving as Dark Souls. Eventually, they even act as fast travel points as well!
