The Sun Chariot build by Lasse Vestergård.
About this creation

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. More information:

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:

Quoting andros tempest I'm guessing, from the selection of parts shown, that if you turn it around the gold disc isn't quite so pretty? Doesn't matter the design is obviously intended to be viewed this way. Lovely shaping on the horse.
The backside of the disc is dark bluish grey because the real disc only has gold on one side.

My favourite build in quite a while. I love the idea of building accurate historical items, I might well have a go at this type of thing myself.
