Umhlanga Rocks is a well known South African tourist destination. Anyone who’s been there would most certainly recognise the whalebone pier and lighthouse situated on the beach. Paul Doran recreated these iconic landscapes in an official MOC commissioned by The Certified LEGO Store for their Gateway branch.
The model, commissioned by the LEGO Certified Store, was designed and built by Peter Furstenberg, a South African adult fan of LEGO. The model contains roughly 13750 pieces and celebrates one of Cape Town’s most iconic regions, the Bo-Kaap, characterised by its colourful houses around the district. The model contains an artist’s impression of 5 iconic houses in Wale Street, a block away from the Bo-Kaap Museum. The houses were chosen for their vibrancy and colour, capturing the colourful essence of the region.
