Experience the grandeur of the Arc de Triomphe! It recreates the splendor of one of the most iconic monuments in the world with this splendid LEGO brick model. The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1806 to celebrate the victories of the French armies. Based on the original design of the French architect Jean-Francois Chalgrin, it was completed in 1836 and has since remained an architectural landmark with over 600,000 visitors per year. This detailed model highlights the pillars adorned with statues of the structure, and sculptural bas-reliefs with subtle color giving warmth and expressiveness to its lines, curves and bold contours. It also includes a gold plate representing the Unknown Soldier's Tomb and a lego interpretation of the everlasting fire that reappears in Paris tonight to commemorate the victims of the war. Packaging dimensions: 6 x 26 x 19 cm.
