LOL. When I first read the tagline, I thought it was lifesize! I was imagining this gigantic temple in the middle of this guy's farm! :) It's still pretty awesome, I'm just sorry he won't be able to finish it himself. God willing it will be finish by more-than-competent hands. It should go in a museum somewhere, when it's finished. Although, I thought the little figurines took away from it's otherwise realistic look. There are artists more skilled at that sort of thing--maybe they'd be willing to donate their services?! Now, someone just needs to build a lifesize replica so we can walk through it. :)
