Monument Using Dominoes As Blocks

Introduction: Monument Using Dominoes As Blocks

Dominoes make delightful building blocks. My eight-year-old son wanted me to post this build he did of a domino-based structure.  And you can play dominoes with them.  Best is a large set with extra pieces for various non-standard domino games.

Is this a temple? A capitol building? A monument? We couldn't decide.
