Recreating the Acropolis Hill and its temples out of Lego

The Acropolis Museum in Athens displayed a Lego recreation of the Acropolis Hill and its temples on Thursday after it was donated by the University of Sydney.

The model was created by Ryan McNaught, who is a professional Lego builder and it took him around 300 hours.

Various periods of the history of the Acropolis are represented including Lord Elgin removing the marbles of the Parthenon Temple.
