Bearded Temple

Shiny Aluminium Eyes peer out from a love nest made from modular palettes  The Whole thing is bearded with tufts of dry grass bundled and bound by string, the mouth leads to a secret passage with access to the crown of the skull to peer out of the top and sneak up on other festival goers just chilling out on the nose or cheeks. The palettes slot together to form cubes and the whole structure somewhat resembles a retro game... the pinacle has flags flowing from it like tibetan a mountaintop. Each platform is made from less palettes than the last taking the step pyramid style used for the burial of ancient pharaohs and this is one structure that has been re-incarnated as The Mayan Lizard God AKA Bearded Heart, the love temple is pulsing.
