Product and play details for Arc de Triomphe LEGO® Architecture
Recreate the splendor of one of the world’s most iconic monuments with this magnificent LEGO® brick model. The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1806 to celebrate the military achievements of the French armies. Based on the original design by French architect Jean-Francois Chalgrin, it was completed in 1836 and remains an architectural landmark, welcoming over 600,000 visitors annually. This detailed model focuses on the structure's statue-adorned pillars and sculptural reliefs, while subtle coloring adds warmth and emphasis to its bold lines, curves and contours. It also includes a golden plate to represent the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a LEGO interpretation of the eternal flame, which is rekindled in Paris every evening to commemorate the victims of war.
