Holy Wisdom

Postby artizan » Wed Mar 21, 2012 10:43 am

Hello all, this model was created for the current Architecture contest on eurobricks.com, but since it is a medieval building originally, it can be posted here as well, I present you the Hagia Sophia:

Come support my new project on LEGO CUUSOO so it can become an official LEGO product:

From Wikipedia;
"Hagia Sophia (from the Greek: "Holy Wisdom", Turkish: Ayasofya) is a former
Orthodox cathedral, later a mosque, and now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey. Famous for its
massive dome, it is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture, and it was the largest
cathedral in the world for nearly a thousand years."

I'm not an expert for microscale creations, but I really like this one, it's easily recognizable.

Saw this on eurobricks but didn't get around to posting. Great job on capturing the look of the Hagia Sophia! I actually recently studied this in my history class :)
I especially like the cheese slopes set around the dome, keep on building!
John 14:6, Jesus answered, "I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

The competition is going to be rather difficult with this in the ring of competitors! :D Great work though! As I said, I had considered the Hagia Sophia for my model, but yours puts even my idea to shame! You handled the domed roofs very well. Best of luck to ye mate!

This is a great micro scale version of the Hagia Sophia. Thank you for sharing it with us.
