Ancient Greek LEGO layout build by Lasse and Anne Mette Vestergård from Denmark.
About this creation
Since I was at holiday in Athens in the summer of 2010 it have been my dream to build an ancient Greek LEGO layout. But my mother and I did also have many other building projects. Therefore it was not possible to start before January 2012. It took 10 month to build the layout.
It’s our largest MOC. The area of the layout is 2.3 x 2.8 meter.
The layout shows a typical Greek town from around year 400 BC. The name of the town is Legopolis. Symmetry, harmony and geometry were importation values in the Ancient Greece. Therefore it have been our goal to build a town in that style.
14-17. February 2013 the layout was exhibited at LEGO World in Copenhagen.
To put it simply, this is amazing! You have combined 2 of my favorite things: Ancient Greek history and LEGOs in such an amazing manner that i cannot even begin to comprehend how well you showed how life truly was in this era. This is whatLEGOs truly are: an artwork, not a child's toy!
wow! huge and full of lovely details! I like the way you made the roof, also idea of small baby - just head from the bag.. great!
also details of theatre arena, the scenerio of game that is played in theatre... amazing... very good job
This is radical! The landscape is amazing, the architecture is stunning, and all the details and techniques used with the minifigs are awesome! Even with all the details, it doesn't look too crowded. Simply mind-blowing.
This setup is so good... each details and way of life is represented. I like the way that people are seated and the cool sandals!!! every aspect of Greece age is there....The bazard....workers, even the troy horse.I am simply speachless!!!!!...i am out of word.
incredibly beautiful! it reninds me my meedass village, chained people, and you make trees like me, and you have meedass s statue, lol, all hail meedass! , lol, how many plates? my village makes 24 plates 4x6, yours? it looks much bigger. superb distinctive piece!
This is amazing! Perfect use of not-pressed-tight tiles on the roofs, and the sun in the theatre decorum is a very creative touch. As are the togas, and many, many more funny little details. Thank you!
Oh my goodness! Wow, it's HUGE! Full of superb little details, things just like not sticking the roof tiles down all the way and making the figures actually sitting in the amphitheater. Truly brilliant work.
This is one of the most amazing layouts I have seen, ever! Love the houses, or better said, all the architecture, also I love the minifigs, ships... Two things that bother me just a bit are the multicoloured rock that seems a bit to square and historically inconsistent women in the theatre. Not bothering me enough to take away a yellow head away from five, though. Good job.
Stunning! This one was amazing from the second I saw the thumbnail. How does it not have more likes? Everything is amazing, from the massive rock work on the mountain to the little details like the slaves! Each part of this (the houses, the coliseum, the boats, the horse etc) would be a worthy moc in it's own right. I'd like to see those ships on their own though, to get a better feel for them?
