The most famous Greek philosophers discuss their ideas in this Lego model!

Note: This is my brother's model, but because he doesn't have a Mecabricks account, I'm posing it for him.

Nonetheless, I can explain a bit the design as I helped on some aspects of it (not many, I admit!). The full design has about 3230 pieces and the one presented to Lego Ideas, just under 3000. It includes nearly all of the figures of the real fresco (check here for reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_School_of_Athens#/media/File:%22The_School_of_Athens%22_by_Raffaello_Sanzio_da_Urbino.jpg), including Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Pythagoras or Euclid. I remember real stuggles and anger when trying to get some figures just right!

Footnote: This model uses two pieces that are not yet in Mecabricks:
Design 23769 (https://brickset.com/parts/design-23769) for some of the minifigures' legs (a total of 8 used).
Design 4502b (https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=4502b&name=Minifigure,%20Plume%20Feather%20Triple&category=%5BMinifigure,%20Headgear%20Accessory%5D#T=S&O={%22iconly%22:0}) for Alexander the Great's hair (a replacement plume has been used instead)

Yes NANSBRICK, they took down the project apparently because it "contained religious references". Me and my brother were thinking of writing a mail to the Ideas team and reuploading the model. Anyway, I thought they would be more concerned about the fresco actually being in a religious building rather than it containing religion (I guess mainly the gods Apollo and Athena, as they've done it with the Hercules Disney CMFs... ): )
