Herakles on his quest to save Prometheus

September 22, 2013

According to the greek myth, Heracles saves Prometheus that was chained by Zeus after he has stolen the fire and gave it to humans. This diorama reflects the imagination of Mihai Marius Mihu about the story of Heracles confronting some myth creatures who guarded the temple on the foot of the mountain where Prometheus was chained.

Heracles confronting minotaurs

 

Quoting the author:

 (I wanted to include the chained Prometheus in the diorama but the lack of pieces forced me to make them separated www.flickr.com/photos/mihaimariusmihu/9515653462/). The emblem on the minotaur shields and the decorative bird statues on the architecture are to relate to the eagle that torments Prometheus.

Roman temple

June 27, 2013

Apparently simple but very effective is the representation of a  Roman Temple built by lokosuperfluolegoman.

However, if we look closely we will find the great details such as the top of the columns, the micro detail of the top wall supported by the columns, the way how the roof was colored and the nice green door.

I stumble with the Abbey of Saint Rumare today while browsing the news MOCs at history bricks flickr group. The MOC built by Aliencat! is pretty old (2009) but I taught it would be nice to revisit this magnificent masterpiece.

Nikaia Antipolis

August 18, 2011

Josh at TBB found this great diorama of an ancient Spartan temple complex built by Dan76. The statue is cool but my favorite part is definitely the theater. Take some time to see the full gallery and admire more closely all the details.

Mount Olympus

November 1, 2010

Pete (aka Auric) shows us the way to the top of the Mount Olympus, the celestial home of the gods, with his micro-entry for the MCCVI at Classic-Castle. I say it before and I’ll say it again, these micro constructions fascinate me with the incredible amount of detail they have. The technique of building upside down as a great idea in order to get all the columns of the circular temple in place.

You can find more pictures here.

And here is the full description of the MOC given by Pete:

The celestial home of the gods, atop the highest peak of Mount Olympus. This mighty citadel, built upon the raw stone of the Mount Olympus, was made as a place to rule over and discuss the affairs of the mortals far below. The houses, thrones, tools and weapons of the gods, as well as the mighty gates and the many metal furnishings, were forged of gold, silver and orichalcum by the god of the smithy, Hephaestus. Black and white marble makes the pillars and floors, while strong grey stone makes the mighty walls. The lowest level, circled by the mighty walls, broken only by the Gate of Olympus, contains the Olympic Stables and the Forge of Hephaestus. As one goes up, one passes through streets, terraces and gardens that wind between the houses of the Gods, until one comes at last to the top, where the massive Olympic Tholos dominates the city, containing within it the Forum of the Gods in the lower level and Zeus’ Throne Room in the upper. It is from here that the Gods rule over the mortals below, and the rule of the gods is mighty indeed. But there are some who say the time of the Gods is coming to an end…

For the MCCVI at Classic-Castle.

Journey to the afterlife

October 29, 2010

Hazel King (aka HoneyBee) shows us the moment where the family and the loyal guard pays a last tribute to the deceased King before he starts its journey to the afterlife. The use of a boat to send the burning corpse to the afterlife was a common ritual in the Viking community.

The MOC shows a nicely boat and some cool details such as the wet sand and the sea waves.

See more pictures here.
