“Temple in the Woods”

The inspiration for this layout is some memories from my childhood. The driftwood which forms the central piece in this layout reminds me of old temples covered with trees I have seen as a kid traveling though out my beautiful homeland. The trailing roots of Anubias over the wood and the cave formed under it illustrate the aging of a layout over a period of over a couple of years, similar to the old temples entrances which have now lost there glory and are now consumed by the surrounding jungle. Hence I called it the “Temple in the Woods”.
