The dedicated seeker impose silence within himself, allowing the direct sunlight of consciousness to rise and to illuminate his mind

with a full indestructible peace. Careful and focused, he embrace the infinite tranquillity which the ignorant people may roam without disorder...

Now I'm not alone anymore neither accompanied. Beyond  duality and encompassing the Whole, I fly with the horned puffins...

No more worried to cast their reflects in the water than the water was to mirror their images...

Pr S. Oktober : What a pity. I was counting on these exercises to help him reign himself in.

H. Jackill : We were stoked with the horned puffins reflecting ourselves everywhere like hell and he cames with his right swaggy stories !

LOL this is great haha, I was just checking out the post in peace when the plot twist made for a good surprise! The build is really good with the birds flying over the land.

Amazing build! I like the idea of two builds mirroring each other, though it took me a while to understand what you aimed to represent with this one.:grin:

A entertaining story and a very cleanly crafted build. My MOC checklist is completed!

I particularly like the sand pit.

I was wondering if someone would ever noticed it.

It was one of the particular feature I was not really satisfied with ( the cherry blossom tree and the bridge are the other)

Thanks, I designed these puffins long ago but didn't find the right built to display them. This lotus trip was the one I waited.

Overall very cool MOC, professor.

I think the idea is novel and uses a lot of interesting techniques. The snotted ground is well done, but does end up being VERY flat where you don't put something on to. Some efforts to break this up could be considered for future builds. On the other hand, your cliffwork and vegetation works out really well, and the gate and altar are highlights, as is minifig (and puffin) posing. Cool with flying birds and great design for them!

As to your overall presentation, I like the fact that you have taken the time to give us several shots with various poses to tell the story. Some of the pictures are a bit grainy (taken with a phone?) and others are a bit off canter. There is also some perspective issues, which typically happens when you take pictures up close. I'd suggest two things: 1) try to take the pictures a bit further away (maybe with more indirect light) and 2) use some program to adjust pictures (by rotating them a few degrees, for instance. GIMP can do a lot and is free. For a simpler solution, "Photos" can also do some of this, although not to the same precision.

Overall, though, story, build and presentation comes nicely together in a very clever idea. Well done.
