It took around 300 hours to Ryan McNaugh, a professional Lego builder, to build this amazing Lego Acropolis. ”The model is as close to the real Acropolis as I could make it. It’s not an architectural scale model; it’s more of a representation. The hardest parts were working out how to do all the diagonal lines,” McNaught said.
The LEGO Acropolis includes ancient and modern details, it shows the Acropolis both as it was in the fifth century BC and as it is today.
In the small Odeon, Theseus is winding his way through a labyrinth made of string to face the Minotaur.
In the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Elton John is giving a concert to modern-day tourists.
Lord Elgin and his crew can be seen removing and stealing the marbles of the Parthenon Temple, while Sigmund Freud, who visited the Acropolis in 1904, looks on. Somehow, Gandalf, from The Lord of the Rings, makes an appearance, as does Tony Mokbel, the Australian fugitive arrested in Athens in 2008, complete with ill-fitting wig.
Lego Acropolis was donated by the University of Sydney to the Acropolis Museum of Athens.
