The Parthenon is one of most iconic Greek temples from the ancient world. Located atop the Acropolis in Athens the Parthenon was built between 447 and 438 BCE and is one of the best examples of the classical Doric order.
Heavily damaged by an explosion in 1687 (the Ottoman Empire was using it to store ammunition!) the temple was left in ruins. Large scale restorations began in the 1970's but this model features the Parthenon ruins, pre-restoration.
The model is comprised of 2,966 parts and is:
- 85.6cm long (107 studs)
- 42.4cm wide (53 studs)
- 23.2cm high (29 studs)
The model features the iconic Doric columns, in various states of disrepair, remnants of the statuary on the frieze and pediments, and some of the interior walls which survived the blast.
The base is heavily influenced by the Lego Architecture style, although this set could be described as Lego Architecture - UCS due to its size and brick count.
