Rivendell created in LEGO

rivendell 9

(From Geek Mom) This incredible recreation of Rivendell, the elves home in Lord of the Rings, from LEGO bricks, is absolutely astounding.

The model was created by the team of Alice Finch and David Frank and the photographs are courtesy of Daniel Siskind who captured this model at BrickCon 2013.

The two builders discussed the idea the first time they met three years ago as novice builders.

With a little experience under their belts—Alice created the large Hogwarts display that won honors at past BrickCon events—they decided to go for it this year.

Planning started in February, with images from Weta Workshop, the folks behind the breathtaking visuals for The Lord of the Rings movies.

Using stencils based on those images, the pair created a plan that allowed them to build on 48-stud base plates that would eventually fit together to create a scene measuring 4″ x 6″ or so. (One of those components ended up weighing in at about 75 pounds!)
