I love hearing the spark of inspiration behind a MOC as beautiful and intricate as this Colosseum by SkyWalter. In this case it’s the 1x2 “jumper arch” that started it all. Those and the new style wands make up the classic arches and columns of this wonderfully realized Architecture style piece.
David Zambito is back with another unique build, adding to the creativity shown on his Flickr photostream. Jungle terrain isn't easy to replicate in LEGO. It'll either be too cluttered, or not have enough overgrowth. I think this terrain has been executed very well, and even went as far as adding a SNOT border around the edges to add to the terrain. The temple is beginning to be swallowed by jungle growth, but not too far that we can't recognize the nice design of the stonework and its layers.
Ancient shipbuilders sure knew how to make a statement. I can't speak to the accuracy of this ancient Greek galley, but it's impressive and absolutely beautiful. With a combination of wind and man power, these ships could transport soldiers quickly and quietly, and judging by the number of oars on this, it was pretty fast.
This very large and beautiful MOC of an ancient amphitheater is from Hardegon. I don't know the details of the build, there's no description, but I can only guess at how long this took to build. The stands are a little barren, apparently whatever show is running now isn't drawing much of a crowd. But I can only imagine the crowd that will surround this MOC if it ever goes on display.

There's no description for this, nor is the name of the image particularly helpful, but it's a pretty stunning build. There's loads of detail on this MOC, everywhere you look. And some really cool and subtle (and not so subtle) architecture techniques. Click through to check out the larger image, it's worth it.
