Ancient Ruins Reclaimed by Nature Jungle Paludarium with DIY Waterfall Statue Face


A few months ago while exploring ideas, I decided to finally give an ancient ruins design a try. As I explored the concept, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. That was easier said than done, though. One thing led to another and I ended up using a lot of different techniques to create what I had imagined. I had a lot of setback and it took me awhile to pull it off, but it's finally complete!

I'm so excited to share this one with you all and I really hope you all enjoy the build. Let me know what you think about it down in the comments, like, and subscribe for more!

Note: I mentioned in the video that I would have changed a few things if I had more time. Originally I wanted the hands to create a second waterfall, but I had to raise the water above what I originally planned to maximize water volume. Additionally, I would have made the hardscape with smaller, more intricate details, to give a different sense of scale. I think it would look cool if the sculpture appear larger than it does in the current design. Regardless, I'm pleased with the result.
