I guess I was kind of inspired by Chinese mythology – the deity Nezha, who is reborn from lotus parts in particular, and therefore thought of making a shrine or super machine godhead. Also the super-technology/automata imagery from Cloud Atlas.


I didn’t have too much technical difficulty in constructing this; it was mostly just polygon-modeling with a lot of rotating and extruding, a lot of smoothing… It’s probably not going to end up being anything like my final midterm project but I think it looks pretty cool.
