I actually have to say, I kinda like those cardboard backed images. Another build well done!
Thanks! and glad someone doesn't mind the cardboard background

This is beautiful. I particularly like how you have done the bridge, the pattern of the tiles and the steps to the building. Great colour combination also for the building - I'm jealous of all those dark red plates!
Thanks! The one thing that bothers me about the stairs is the tiles I had to put across the front to cover the studs. But other than that I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

Love the dark red, and using the lever bottoms in the front of the building was a great idea! I like the roof too, and great work with the sidewalk!
Thanks Kai! I was looking for another ornamental piece other than my usual 1x1 round plate and I think the lever base works well here. I've tried it elsewhere and it doesn't work out so well.

Wow the better pictures really highlight how beautiful this is
The dark red and white color scheme is gorgeous,hope you got those plates off a PaB wall
Thanks! I feel this might be one of my best MOCs yet although the Black Pyramid might contend.

With those new pictures it just looks absolutely fantastic. Great addition to Varlyrio!! And I feel very honored that finally someone picked up my 2*1 plate technique!!
Thanks! Your Varlyrio entry actual gave me inspiration for this.

Looks great Mikel!.....I mean Masa
I love the look of those lamp posts
Thanks! For the record concerning the name change, I was trying to get more in the Kaliphlin spirit. From my research, Masa is Japanese name meaning true sand and being that I have started building a lot of sandy MOCs recently I thought the name fit.
I also am really pleased with how the lamp posts turned out. I tried several different ideas for the lamp posts before settling on this design.

Really nice Convent
And in reply to all the "Thats a lot of DK red plates", I got all the DK red plates from a single Robie House when it was on sale at Amazon.
