Built by Ryan McNaught, the only Lego-certified professional in the southern hemisphere, the Lego Acropolis contains more than 120,000 bricks and took about 300 hours to build. The buildings, including The Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the smaller Erechtheion temple and the Propylaia, the monumental gateway, are made from gleaming white bricks.
”The model is as close to the real Acropolis as I could make it,” he says. ”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.”
