Venus de Milo [1:2] . An ancient Greek statue created at some time between 130 and 100 BC, it is believed to depict Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans) the goddess of love and beauty. It is a marble sculpture, slightly larger than life size at 203 cm (6 ft 8 in) high. . The LEGO model is build at 50% of the original size, standing 101 cm (3 ft 4 in) high and uses an estimate 6,000 bricks. The experience with the Gargoyle (13kg) I've built, learns that large models (70+ layers) are not only cumbersome but also hard to move and have the tendency to become fragile when they are partially hollow. With this lesson in mind I decided to use tiles to seperate torso from belly and hips. The original statue can be admired at Le Louvre in Paris. I would love to build a [1:1] replica one day, but i'm afraid it would have to be commissioned by a museum ...
