It does look like a Mayan building. It's certainly most interesting.

Brings out a most Innovative Dimension. Alchemies an Extravagant Inventive layout, where lighting is appealing. Purely Exotic, Splendid muted color tones and the composition, the atmosphere of the image to this layout reminds me of Indians from Ages ago.

THIS IS OUTSTANDING, ADRIAN. I THOUGHT MAYAN IMMEDIATELY. WOW. SUPERB.

Artist Reply: Thanks Sharon. The entire work is constructed with Mayan symbols only, this is responsible for the authentic look.

I thought is a 39 steps but its' one over. Yes numeratical symbols great

Artist Reply: Thanks! I could not manage it exactly with the number of steps due to standardized corrugated carton.
