The LEGO Acropolis

This afternoon, Clara and I headed to the University of Sydney Museum to check out their LEGO Acropolis exhibit. Hey floor, I heard you like jaw!

Following on from the extraordinary success of the LEGO Colosseum in 2012, the Brickman, Ryan McNaught,
has turned his hand to one of the most iconic architectural monuments of Ancient Greece – the Acropolis!

The LEGO model displays the Acropolis both as it was in the fifth century BC and as it is today, as one of
Greece's most popular tourist attractions. Captured in LEGO are some of the Acropolis' more famous
visitors including Pericles, Lord Elgin, Dame Agatha Christie, and even Elton John.

Beside the stunning model were tables and chairs with LEGO bricks. Naturally, Clara and I proceeded to spend the early evening building. Clara built a flying house; and I attempted my own Greek building. You can view our efforts (and theirs!) in my Flickr gallery.
