What have the Romans done for us? Apart from great buildings, obviously

You wait ages for some epic brick creations based in Roman times, and then two come along at once. Just after we feature the enormous LEGO Temple of Minerva, here’s an excellent model by Mihai Marius Mihu.

Temple Arrival

The landscaping on display here is really nice, with some good brickwork for cobblestones, and a scattering of textured bricks to break up some of the walls. The central trio of statues also looks great. But what makes the model is the splash of red and gold in the architecture — a beautiful addition which makes the temple buildings look fantastic.
