Atlantis the lost city

The lost city of Atlantis

 

There had been a powerful empire located to the west of the Pillars of Hercules (what we now call the Straight of Gibraltar) on an island in the Atlantic Ocean. The nation there had been established by Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Poseidon fathered five sets of twins on the island. The firstborn, Atlas, had the continent and the surrounding ocean named for him. Poseidon divided the land into ten sections, each to be ruled by a son, or his heirs.

 

The capital city of Atlantis was a marvel of architecture and engineering. The city was composed of a series of concentric walls and canals. At the very center was a hill, and on top of the hill a temple to Poseidon. Inside was a gold statue of the God of the Sea showing him driving six winged horses.

 

About 9000 years before the time of Plato, after the people of Atlantis became corrupt and greedy, the gods decided to destroy them. A violent earthquake shook the land, giant waves rolled over the shores, and the island sank into the sea, never to be seen again.

 

Untill today!

    Great job! The seaweeds and the ragged sail do really set the atmosphere, and give everything a slow waving sense of movement. Highly inspiring.

    Oh! Tof zeg! Kom je naar de volgende Lowlugmeeting (weet nog niet waar of wanneer) en neem je hem mee? Heb hem net gevonden omdat er in het algmene Legovragentopic van Lowlug naar gevraagd werd....
  • Bart Willen 5y

    Hey bedankt voor je reactie! Heb je misschien een link naar het topic? Ik zou hem graag mee willen nemen, maar ik heb hem een paar weken geleden afgebroken. Vervoer zou trouwens ook een HEL zijn. Heel veel onderdelen braken snel af.

    What is the animal the Gorgon, Medusa is riding on?
  • Bart Willen 5y

    It's a dinosaur, just like Nessie in Loch Ness
  • TheVoidofBricks 5y

    So it's a plesiosaurus, or the loch ness monster?
  • Bart Willen 5y
