Retired Farmer Builds Scale Model Of Ancient King Herod's Temple
Alec Garrard, a retired farmer from Norfolk England, has spent more than 30 years building an enormous scale model of a King Herod's temple. He has dedicated a massive 33,000 hours to constructing the ancient temple, which measures a whopping 20ft by 12ft.
The pensioner has hand-baked and painted every clay brick and tile and even sculpted 4,000 tiny human figures to populate the courtyards.
