Julius Germanicus Posted December 8, 2022 · Member Share Posted December 8, 2022 My latest architectural study in Lego was created especially for the exhibition "New Media in the Age of Augustus - Power and Media in Ancient Rome" currently shown at the Buccerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg. It is highly recommended: https://www.buceriuskunstforum.de/en/exhibitions/die-neuen-bilder-des-augustus The arch was granted to Augustus in 19 BC after he recovered the Aquilae lost in the battle of Carrhae and by Marcus Antonius. It can be reconstructed through detailed numismatic depictions - they show a three-gated ach (probably the first such structure built in Rome) with Augustus riding a chariot surmounting the central attic, flanked by two subjugated Parthians offering him standards over the side gates: My Lego recreation is in 1:50 scale: As a bonus, you may take a look at some of my other Lego arches at the exhibition until January 11 (if you happen to be in town): Sadly I do not have a coin featuring Augustus´ arch, but maybe you can show yours or anything related! 24 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
