I borrowed designs from Hindu Indian temples to create this one. These stone buildings are decorated on every surface with carvings, all of them illustrating a mythological or historical story. I recreated this temple out of reflective translucent material, with dawn and clouds rising in the background. I always use some real architecture as the inspiration for my building fantasies.
"Temple of Dawn" is gouache and colored pencil on grey paper, 7" x 10", February 1994.
