How cool is this? LEGO builders Alice Finch and David Frank made a huge model of Rivendell from Lord of the Rings.
The builders performed research by carefully watching The Fellowship of the Ring in an attempt to put the entire city of Rivendell together. They say that research was required because it was hard to tell what scenes in the film happened where.
The massive finished model is intricate and beautiful with structures that sprout out of the rocks and lush greenery. Its builders say that one of the most challenging parts was getting the buildings into the landscape. They did the landscape first and added the buildings later.
The finished product is an awesome sight, and you can check out many more detailed images on their project’s Flickr page.
