MOC: Solvognen

Recommended Posts

The Sun Chariot (Danish: Solvognen) is one of the most famous Danish archaeological finds. The sculpture was made in the Bronze Age about 1350 BC. The sculpture was discovered in 1902 in a peat bog on the Trundholm moor. It is now in the collection of the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.

Since 2011 The Sun Chariot has been portrayed at the Danish 1000-krone banknote. This gave my the inspiration to build a 1:1 MOC of the Sun Chariot.

My MOC show how the Sun Chariot looked like when it was new and undamaged.

I have only used two different colours in this MOC: Dark Bluish Gray and Pearl Gold.

The assortment of pearl gold parts are not large. Therefore I had to build the whole gold circle of this five kinds of parts:

Hi Lasse,

Very nice build. Will you include it in one of your large diaporamas?

I have the same issue regarding pearl gold. I wish there were more bricks in that color. A 1x1 regular stud could be a nice start.

I'm planning to exhibit it in the LUGshowcase in LEGO Store Copenhagen.
