Lego art (Dome of the Rock edition)

From Wikipedia (footnotes omitted): “The Dome of the Rock — Arabic: قبة الصخرة‎ (transliteration: Qubbat Al-Sakhrah), Hebrew: כיפת הסלע‎ (transliteration: Kipat Hasela) — is a shrine located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem … [It] is now one of the oldest works of Islamic architecture [and] has been called ‘Jerusalem’s most recognizable landmark’ * * * The site’s significance stems from religious traditions regarding the rock, known as the Foundation Stone, at its heart, which bears great significance for Jews and Muslims.”
