Using over 300,000 tiny bricks a group of Lego fans have recreated the venues of the Chinese Olympics in amazing detail.
Included are the famous Bird’s Nest National Stadium, the Water Cube aquatics centre, rowing lakes, Equestrian centre and even the athletes village.
Over 30 members of the Hong Kong Lego User Group spent weeks constructing the 8m x 3m project featuring 4,500 Lego people.
A spokesman for the group said: "We would like to promote LEGO creative culture to local public as well as promote China to international by LEGO."
Tennis, table tennis, beach volleyball, football, sailing and windsurfing are also among the sports featured in the replica.
