Jerusalem A.D. 40
This miniature diorama of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount is my first large work in miniature. It is based off of illustrations and renderings from the both the internet and the ESV Study Bible. It features many details including a feature which allows it to open, revealing catacombs underneath! The project took two days, and I am very pleased with the results. Please rate and comment!
About this creation

A bird's eye view. The vignette is 16 by 24 studs.



A view of the back and the city. I ran out of brown bricks and did not have enough to finish the back.



The city wall and the Royal Stoa.



Of course, the Temple itself. I am very pleased at my cleverness here, but yes, it does have a sticker.



The Antonia Fortress and the Pool of Israel. This MOC uses four minifig legs in its construction.



Wilson's Arch and the west side of the Temple Mount.



A picture illustrating the opening system. Remove the white building, and the diorama opens on a hinge.






The catacombs beneath Jerusalem!



Yes, this is meant to be the missing Ark of the Covenant. I know it is way out of scale, but still, it could be there...



And lastly, a source photo for reference.

Good work Paul! I love the hill. Sorry Paul. I heard you were actually building. Sorting peaces is just boring! It takes no brainpower! I could sort pieces while doing my math. I Don't!

Quoting Nathaniel Holman this is amazing. love the detail and accuracy of it all. I heard you built these during school from max pointner. haha.
Ok. let's clarify some things shall we? First of all, it is good to have you on MOCpages, but second, no. I did not build these during school. All I told Max was that I sorted colors in the pre-discussion section before my online classes. Tell Max to get his facts straight. Anyhow, I'm glad you like it, and welcome to MOCpages.
