Temple of Legochitli

Two Spanish explorers spotted an old temple at the verge of the jungle. They already imagine the great riches that it might hold. However, the temple is not abandoned. Soon they will meet its brave defenders…


I started building the rocks and the beach last year as a base for some castle ruins. Now I’ve finally been reunited with my bricks and decided to finish it, but the idea changed a bit. The landscape looked exotic enough to put an Aztec temple on top of it instead.


It was surprisingly difficult to reflect the characteristics of Aztec architecture. I wanted to showcase some interesting techniques and patterns, but very soon it started to look like baroque. After all, I decided to keep the temple as simple as possible.
