Five friends got together to create the first ever Lego that shows to the world the wonders of Peru. A country of fusion not only in landscapes and ecosystems (Coast, Mountains and Jungle), but in gastronomy, culture and race (Japanese, Chinese, African and Native Indian).

For the creation of our model, we took the inspiration from the Retablo Ayacuchano, a sophisticated Andean folk art in the form of portable boxes in which interior there usually shows different situations and landscapes. This kind of art is created in wood by Andean artists and is well regarded by Peruvians and foreigners alike due to it’s peculiar design and composition.

With the Retablo Ayacuchano in mind, we built ours out of 2441 pieces of Lego to enclose a beautiful landscape with high cultural value to the world, highlighting the union of races and cultures besides synthesising a part of the great Latin-American heritage to mankind.

We believe our project will be well received no only in Latin-America but in the rest of the world as well, mainly because it is a model that works as a toy but can also be placed in houses and offices as a piece of art.

Thanks in advance to every single supporter and everyone who stopped to look at this project!
