The Mountain of Art

Recommended Posts

Built for Brickstory competition - category: history of art.


The construction depicts the history of art and architecture from Lascaux cave paintings to contemporary art. There are ten stages that I chose as the milestones of history of art - each one highlighting one piece of art, as well as a minifig and some surroundings matching the historical period.:


1. Prehistoric times - Lascaux wall paintings

2. Ancient Egypt - image of Osiris

3. Ancient Greece - columns of Ionic, Doric and Corynthian order

4. Ancient Rome - triumphal arch of Orange

5. Gothic - church of St Mary, Krakow

6. Renaissance - merchant's house

7. Baroque - an altarpiece

8. Classicism - Pantheon in Paris

9. Romanticism - Liberty Leadin the People, painting by E. Delacroix

10. Contemporary art - Piet Mondrian's painting, Chrysler Building (art deco) and Bauhaus furniture

Saw this on Flickr and I love it! All of the detail and history you managed to pack into microscale-style building is really impressive.

Maybe it's just me, but I see eleven works of art? This whole sculpture is a piece of art in it's own right! :wink: Incredible presentation of the various stages, beautiful! :thumbup::wub::thumbup:
