Temple of Fortuna Virilis
About this creation
To suit my ever-growing liking of the classical periods of art, here is the Temple of Fortuna Virilis (a.k.a the Temple of Portunus). This small and eclectic temple was designed during the Republican period of Roman history. The columns present here are of the doric 4x7 order. It contains Greek, Roman, and Etruscan influences.

The actual structure. (note the difference in the capitals between my structure and the real thing. Ionic capitals just doesn't work well with lego.)

Thanks for looking, I'll have some more stuff to put up soon enough when I get around to it.

I'm having a hard time finding a software that can change the background. Do you know one?

The comparison of this perfect! You got the pillars, grass, and shape built greatly. Oh, and I was wondering if you could tell me what software you use to make your background completely white? I think it would improve my photo quality.

Quoting Michael Sloper I'm having a hard time finding a software that can change the background. Do you know one?
I use Corel Photo-Editor 4x Graphics Edition. Many different softwares have this capability and almost none are available online for a free download (except for trials). I'd recommend searching sites or checking a local Best Buy for one.

Pretty much ANY form of a photo editor or photoshop will suffice in that simple task.

At first thought I would believe so; however, I suddenly remembered a certain piece that would work in this situation. (http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?q=3647) Thank you for the idea, Lee! -Dylan

Hmmm, I guess using gears for the columns would just be too big at this scale. Still, a lovely job. Lee.

Quoting Ian Paige well executed mini temple. i assume you've seen Casper von Nimwegen's temple. i do have a suggestion to solve your capital order dilema. at this scale i like to use minifig binocular pieces for ionic capitals. try it out and see if you like it.
Thank You. I'm not familiar with the work of Casper von Nimwegen (or at least I don't recognize the name). The binocular idea is genius for the ionic capitals, I might have to keep that one in mind if there is gonna be a future temple from me. Thanks. -Dylan

This is just lovely Dylan. As Mark mentions below, the parts used in the landscaping are spot on and the temple itself has really nice details even at this scale. Great job.

I see you're picking up on micro architecture, although not as big as your Notre Dame, this piece is nice in its own right. I personally think that smaller pieces are trickier than the larger ones, as you have much less space to put in as many details, but this one has been pulled off beautifully. Great work! ~T

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Excellent job Dylan! Are you or have you taken architecture in school? You're teaching me a lot through your builds....perhaps you should consider a teaching career.
Thank you. No I have not taken an architecture class, but I have taken a college Art History class, so I kind of think like an artist. I don't think I'll go with the teaching career, but thanks for the good words, Heath!
