Over at Uplift 450, 3850 you will find quite an incredible perched high on the cliffside and towering into the sky.  Inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France, this build by Epicdrewdown really does take what can be done in our survival zone of The Uplift World metaverse to the next level.
“The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile (Triumphal Arch of the Star) is one of the most famous monuments in ParisFrance, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l’Étoile — the étoile or “star” of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues. The location of the arc and the plaza is shared between three arrondissements16th (south and west), 17th (north) and 8th (east). The Arc de Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
As the central cohesive element of the Axe historique, a sequence of monuments and grand thoroughfares on a route running from the courtyard of the Louvre to the Grande Arche de la Défense, the Arc de Triomphe was designed by Jean Chalgrin in 1806, and its iconographic program pits heroically nude French youths against bearded Germanic warriors in chain mail. It set the tone for public monuments with triumphant patriotic messages.” [Everpedia: Arc de Triomphe]

As Epicdrewdown notes, “France is one of the countries that I really want to go. The French architecture is something I really look up to. It looks like Minecraft is the closest thing I can get to it right now.”  

And don’t forget to hang about for the night, as the experience is quite different but just as uniquely impressive with the backdrop of the stars and other backdrop lighting to say the least…

A fascinating build to be sure, and one of some pretty serious interactive scope at that.  Just wandering about and seeing the scope and scale of the Arc de Triomphe standing there on the cliffside adjacent to the other builds in the vicinity is really quite a mind bending experience.  Do take the time to wonder on over and have a meander about, for Epicdrewdown really has done this cultural icon justice and then some with this incredible piece of sheer replicative artistry layed out in UpLuft there for all to experience and see!
