Shortly before his demise at his own hands, the Mad Monk Aloysius of the Holy Order recorded for posterity the scene of devastation that recently engulfed Caestra. Aloysius was in a fragile mental condition, and we cannot say for sure whether this is an accurate representation, as there are no other known survivors. The ruins of Caestra do suggest at least some of this picture represents events on the ground. The Elementals and their minions are a mighty force. We must redouble our defences.
I wanted to try something very different with this challenge. The challenge of translating a Hieronymous Bosch painting into lego very much appealed. Bosch's visions of Hell epitomise the Medieval horror of the supernatural, for me. I want to leave open the suggestion that some of this might be the imagination of a somewhat fragile Mad Monk. This picture is based on a fragment of "Christ in Limbo" from a follower of Bosch.
I know there are some religious Christians on the site, I have no intention to offend anyone with this challenge. I have kept commentary in the story to a minimum because I am not really too sure what is going on in the painting in the first place. But it ain't good if this stuff comes to Historica!
Terrible light today, apologies for the photo quality.
