Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A Lord of the Rings-themed scene constructed from Lego pieces and other mini bricks broke a Guinness World Record after being measured at 2,060 square feet, 71 square inches.

The diorama of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth at the Smaerd Land children's museum in Shenzhen, China, was completed this month after three years of construction.


The scene, which was constructed by a team of more than 40 designers and engineers, set the Guinness record for the largest interlocking plastic brick diorama.

The diorama, which was built as part of the museum's Blocks Kingdom exhibit, features about 150 million plastic bricks.
