Do you remember the famous Colosseum of Ancient Rome? It is the largest amphitheatre built by the Romans and stands tall as Rome’s iconic landmark.
This 2000-year old architecture of Italy has now been recreated with the help of lego pieces!
Recently, a toymaker from Virginia created a replica using a record-setting number of individual Lego pieces and called it the Lego Colosseum.
Not only did this innovation blew everyone’s mind off but had also earned it the title for the Largest Commercially Available Lego Set.
Unbelievable, isn’t it?
Let’s find out more about this Lego Colosseum:
- The Lego Colosseum is made up of 9,036 pieces and is the largest Lego set in the world
- In February 2021, Paul Ufema from the US took 13 hours, 37 minutes and 36 seconds to build this Colosseum
- The Lego model also features several salient features of the ancient amphitheatre, such as its arches, stepped layout and the iconic columns
Paul has a passion for building legos, and he displays them on his YouTube channel named All New Bricks.
