My entry for the contest is a replica of The Great Pyramids of Giza. It is a model for the Landmark series, being one of the 7 wonders of the world! It is the oldest one of them, too. It was the tallest structure in the world for 3,800 years. Most people agree that it was created by simply dragging stones from a quarry and lifting them onto the structure. It is actually built from approximately 2.3 million blocks of limestone.
STATS (Real life)
Construction: Around 2560 BC.
REAL LIFE PICTURE
The pyramid of Giza is the largest of 3 main pyramids in the group. They are set in a beautiful scene of Egypt, in the desert.

FRONT VIEW OF MY CREATION
My version has a dark entrance, inviting you in to the scariness that awaits...just kidding! The pyramids are a great place to visit, especially if you like it nice and hot! At the top is a golden crystal that many people have adventured to get, but all have failed, with disastrous results...(cough)death(cough). It is surrounded by thick dunes of sand.
TOP VIEW OF MY CREATION
Here is a view of the top of my pyramid. With 8 layers, it's an ultimate climb for extreme people. Even the sand comes up to the bottom layers, making it hard to even reach it!
