Where the Fat Lady Sings
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on one, two, or three 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. Metal Earth models are a little less challenging than our 3D wooden puzzles, but you do need some patience and dexterity because they're also much smaller. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products tab).
The Sydney Opera House is a challenging Metal Earth model. It consists of 44 pieces on two sheets of metal.
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children.

The Sydney Opera House is about much more than opera, hosting some 1,500 performing arts events each year including ballet, plays, and orchestral concerts; it has even hosted some Olympic sporting events. One of the 20th century's most distinctive buildings, the opera house was completed in 1973 and became a UNESCO world heritage site in 2007.
