Project Description

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and most intact Wonder of the Ancient World: it’s the largest in a compound of buildings paying homage to Pharaoh Khufu and his family. It is believed to have been completed in 2560 B.C., and it remained the tallest human-built structure for nearly 4,000 years, made up of 2.3 million giant bricks in all. How these monumental structures were built remains up for study and debate.

Fun facts about the LEGO version at Brick by Brick:
·Almost 12 feet long
·Design time: 50 hours
·Build time: 45 hours
·Number of bricks: 24,000
·The pieces used in the corners are very rare, only found in a few sets that are no longer produced.
