Sean built a model of The Great Wall of China for a Chinese documentary about LEGO.
About this creation
LEGO Great Wall of China

In 2006, a Hong Kong TV crew filmed a documentary called 至爱品牌 乐高 ("Lovemarks: LEGO") about the passionate followings of LEGO. Sean flew out and built a sculpture of the Great Wall of China using thousands of LEGO bricks, and was interviewed for the documentary. Fellow brick artist Nathan also came out to help; together, they were filmed building the Great Wall LEGO model over the course of about 90 minutes.

Highlights (about 2 minutes)



Sean was interviewed shortly about his passion for LEGO toys. The final documentary aired September 30, 2006 in Mandarin Chinese on Fuji TV (51/Horizons) in Hong Kong. 至爱品牌 乐高 , 长城 , 中国

The completed model uses about 4000 LEGO elements. It's 30 inches long, 15 inches deep, and the highest peak is 8 inches tall.


Sean visited the real Great Wall in Badaling, China, (near Beijing) prior to building the model.

The Great Wall of China was initially built as separated walls by different states before the unification of China to protect their land from invasions. After the Qin Dynasty proved to be the most powerful and took over most of the lands, Emperor Qin Shi Huang connected several walls and built the first Great Wall of China between 220206 BC, and, thus, called 10,000 li Wall. The great wall of China was established to prevent any invasion attempts and savage attacks by the northern nomadic tribes and dynasties. However, Genghis Khan, a known leader who united northern nomadic tribes, was able to penetrate the wall and able to conquer northern China, which spread all over the country later on. After the Mongol Empire, China was once again back to the leadership of their countrymen; this time, the Ming Dynasty emerged to be the most powerful. During the Ming Dynasty, the concept of the Great Wall was revived once again. The Ming Dynasty revived, reconstruct, and further elongated the Great Wall of China under its 10 year project. They adopted the strategies used by Mongols to penetrate the walls. They further extended it to the desert where the nomadic tribes used to came from. Unlike the earlier walls, Ming used bricks and stones instead of rammed earth to strengthen it, and devoted on reconstruction and repair of the walls as Mongols continued their attempts.

Ewen decided to review this after searching for "China". Ewen thinks this is awesome. Ewen would like to know why you're referring to yourself in third person. Ewen didn't know that it went over hills. Cool.

Great, though some smoothing-out would give it more like the original feel...

Very good landscaping, it would be better if you used plates to smooth it out but it's still very well done. Great job with the wall, though the studs don't look very good with it, but I suppose thats inevitable.
