Il Plastico, a 1:250 scale model of Constantinian Rome (~early 300s AD) built in the 1930s. You've probably seen bits of it in different movies, namely Gladiator for some of the shots of Rome. No idea something like this existed.

That' is simply a stunning work of art. Thanks for sharing this!

Very cool.

My 'Waiting for Clod' thread:

Always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C.S. Lewis, 1898 - 1963.
