Roman Style Courtyard
Basically a study Roman architecture, this technique-heavy bignette is a historic, fictional model of an imaginary Roman private plaza. It combines a SNOT work open air atrium with a Greco-Roman building facade and semi-interior. The model features two statues, cressets, a wine and cheese cart, a Roman guard, a Roman Emperor, and a scale micro-model of the planned coliseum in Rome. This project took several days, but the results I am very pleased with. Thanks for viewing and please comment!
About this creation
Two brown capes act as curtains that separate the interior from the exterior.

One aspect of the construction of this model is illegal in that there is a 1/3 stud offset. Oh well. :-)

The model measures about 23 studs long and 18 studs wide.

The SNOT steps that lead down to the lower plaza were mentally trying to construct.

The model of the coliseum, contoured with rubber-bands.

The wine and cheese cart with one of the statues in the background.

The courtyard cressets.

My custom Caesar. His face is the head of a Star Wars Rebel Soldier with the chin strap removed with an eraser.

My modified collectable minifigure Roman soldier, now with tan instead of yellow flesh.

The constructed interior of the building features small niches in the walls on either side of the door where fire pans give light.

The red tile roof is held in place by rubber traction, yet is removable.

Edit: Thanks to all of you who have allowed this MOC to get on the homepage. This is really an honor for me as I have not been on the 'pages for very long. Thanks again to all of you. You guys have made my day!

Very cool!! I just got done watching the movie Gladiator (starring Russel Crow (who is a boss!)) so this sort of thing is fresh on my mind... Anyways, I really like your SNOT technique and the use of capes as curtains (marvelous). I love your vignettes..... 5/5

Very nice, but that's no Roman soldier, for a variety of reasons I could name. I understand the usage though.
