M.O. Round 2: Josh Christenson vs. Legopard . . 2012 MocOlympics My opponent Legopard, and his entry. The Renaissance: A genre the Lego company has never produced? What would it look like in plastic bricks? Choose a scene set in the Renaissance period (different from the middle ages and typical "castle" stuff so choose wisely) and show us your take on it. "The burning of the Globe or playhouse on the Bankside on St. Peter's day cannot escape you; which fell out by a peal of chambers, (that I know not upon what occasion were to be used in the play,) the tampin or stopple of one of them lighting in the thatch that covered the house, burn'd it down to the ground in less than two hours, with a dwelling-house adjoyning; and it was a great marvaile and a fair grace of God that the people had so little harm, having but two narrow doors to get out." - John Chamberaine From the moment I first read this category, I knew instantly I had to build a scene of the very early 1600s Shakespeare Globe Theatre. On June 29th, 1613, during a reenactment of Shakespeare's play called Henry VIII, the performers lit off a cannon for the king's appearance (an actor) on the stage (they would do this for any character entrance with prestige, or importance, for effect). The king/actor appeared, masquerading at Cardinal Wosley's house at that point in the play, when sparks from the wadded cannon flew onto the thatched roof, and caught a fire. At first, the audience believed it was just smoke, but later, flames began to expand across the whole theatre. The Old Globe Theatre posed a fire hazard, in that it was built mainly of wood, especially it's thatched roof, and also interior structures were wooden too. Back in the 1600s, they had no fire departments, safety codes, and whatever, but only buckets and water, so they were pretty hopeless. The theatre burned to the ground in less than two hours, luckily having no deaths or injuries, except for one man whose pants caught on fire, which he was able to put out with his bottle of ale. Only men were permitted to come to the plays back then, and also perform in them. This is the only sketch/picture I could really find of the 1600s Globe Theatre, again, there was no digital photography or anything of that sort in that time period, I apologize. I did find a few other images, all having the same roof configuration, design, etc., but none of them had as good of an interior view as this one. Thanks for viewing, and good luck to others!
