Gate of the Wind Horse

People traverse the mountains to reach this ancient gate in hopes of prosperity and blessings. Rumors say that the horse god appears to the ones he considers the most holy.
For this project I sculpted my gate in Blender and did some light paint over my 3D scene. I looked at middle eastern and Tibetan architecture for the design the gate. Looking at simplified horses, I felt like an arch with lines going through resembled a horse mane so I repeated that shape throughout.
This was created in Titas Ženevičius's class at New3dge at the beginning of September!
