Ryan McNaught created an artistic replica of the Colosseum using only LEGO pieces, proving that LEGO isn't just for young children. McNaught, known as 'The BRICK MAN,' used 200,000 pieces of LEGO to build this detailed sculpture.
On McNaught’s website, he describes the sculpture as one of the "hardest things [he has] ever made given its shape and detail requirements.” McNaught captures both the present day look of the Colosseum and what it was like back in 80AD.
No need to go to Rome as this intricate sculpture gives you a very accurate depiction of what it looks like. It’s currently on display at the University of Sydney. Every inch of the building is very precise; it even has little Romans and spectators in the crowd.
