Waste of shields, I would never have done that.
But hey, you're choice
Congrats we all stand in awe and marvel at your exquisite achievement
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God? - Epicurus
You know, the Pyramids were originally coated with a softer white stone (that unfortunately didn't pass the test of time), so originally the Pyramids didn't look like Inca temples, but the surfaces were flat. IIRC the tops were covered with ivory (Legoland wouldn't happen to have any, would it? ), but raiders (European treasure hunters, I think) removed them hundreds of years ago.
Yours are still magnificent, though.

Shiber, the only reason that the original face stones (white Granate IIRC) on the pyramids didn't stand the test of time, was that they were stripped off by later natives to use in Cairo buildings.
Yep, that's why some of it is still at the topmost areas of the Pyramids. The locals couldn't reach that high.
