I had to produce a piece of artwork for a school house competition based on the theme of A Night At The Museum, with a sub topic of The Romans. This was my submission. My inspiration behind choosing the Colosseum was that drawing is not my strong point whereas engineering is. I love building models and I am fascinated by construction and mechanics. I just think that the structure and design of the Colosseum is amazing, also the sheer size of it is mind blowing and for the Romans to produce such a magnificent building in their time was a colossal feat.
