Featured LEGO creation: Khi-Osk

I wanted to share with you this intricately detailed tomb by Peter Shutter. He did an excellent job mixing the old and new Egyptian LEGO themes. (You can click on any of the pictures to see a larger version at Peter’s gallery.)

The first Egyptian related theme by the LEGO Group was under the Adventurers line, released in the late 1990s. These sets were full of beautifully printed bricks. (You may still find these on Bricklink.)

The second wave of Egyptian LEGO sets came out recently, under the name Pharaoh’s Questicon. These sets don’t have such nicely detailed parts, but the minifigs are absolutely gorgeous!

Here is the entrance-hall to the tomb. The floor-mosaic was created using the tiles for the LEGO-dice in the new LEGO Games sets. A simple, yet effective design!

Here is one side of the inner chamber, with more LEGO Games tiles. Standing guard are the Anubis minifigs from Pharaoh’s Quest line. Also check out the tiny pyramid!

On the other side is the Pharaoh’s sarcophagus, with his internal organs placed in an urn at his feet. At the opposite wall stand the Pharaoh’s minions (also from the LEGO Games sets), ready to serve him whenever he decides to awaken.  Also note the simple yet unique design of the steps!

This is one of the best parts! The sarco-drawers! Here is where the mummies of the dead relatives are resting.

The drawers pull out to reveal the mummies.

Appearently one of them didn’t mummify properly and turned into a vampire! 😯

    Is this from Cigars of the Pharoah by Herge of the adventures of Tintin?

      Will, no I don’t think it is related, but you can ask Peter just to make sure. 😉

    Beautiful designs, my son will go nuts over this.
    Gorgeous photos too, you can tell when someone has been doing this for a while the close up photos look divine.
    Thanks for the great post and beautiful blog.
    When my blog grows up it wants to be like yours :0)

      Hey, Inger! Yes, Peter’s photos are gorgeous! I didn’t have to do any editing at all, which is always a great relief! 😛
      BTW, your blog is super great! I’m planning to write a post on other LEGO sites, forums and blogs, and I will surely ad yours! And if you ever like to write a guest-post just let me know. 😛

    thnx for blogging me, and for you nice review.
    due to holidays I can’t finish the project now, but i will continue next month.
    Prince Dracu-Teb was undead already, his relatives just locked him away in the pharao’s tomb, behind a nice relief of garlic 😀
    Cigars of the Pharao has always been a great inspiration to me since I read it when I was seven. The pharao’s name is derived from a kiosk, a small news stand very common here in Europe. Would be a great idea to make the cover of that album in Lego. Something for next month.
