Mesopotamian ziggurat (micro model) is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by MA_bricks on May 31st, 2013.

This message was written by the creator of the project. Do not modify the message in any way.

This is the micro scaled model of a Mesopotamian ziggurat in its full form, which can fit into LEGO Architecture series.

We are not totally sure about how a ziggurat really looked like, because the elevations that remained more or less intact throughout thousands of years are reduced to the first few floors of the whole pyramidal structure.

I tried to combine two historical buildings here after their visual reconstructions: the ziggurat of Ur (the best-preserved one), and the ziggurat of Babylon (completely destoyed). Latter is also known as "Etemenanki", the "Temple of the foundation of Heaven and Earth", or from the biblical legend: the Tower of Babel.
