Earthy is brilliant, thanks! Grin 

When I stare at things for too long they start to become meaningless...somet imes it really helps to get somebody else's point of view.

What do you get from this?

Peacocks?  Tribal?  Mardi Gras?  ...hopelessness? Cheesy


I'm getting a very strong Venice Carnival vibe from it - I think it's the mask element and the rich, decadent feel of the colours.

Just my tuppence!

Its funny how different people get different things from it...I'm getting more of a shaman type vibe.

(and I too, have peacock feathers that have been staring at me for 2 years, waiting to be used. I have a fab idea for them, but can't find the right image to go with them. Until them, they sit, looking at me with their big ol' eyes.)

I too am getting a tribal, shaman, earthy vibe. Kind of like Apocolypto, without the drunken crazy mel gibson part...

Homies! I love how you made the "figurehead" be a plate of beans, burrito and taco. The colors are great too...too bad there's not way to make the little low rider have mini-hydraulics! Overall, just fantastic.

Your shrine is reminding me to get to my next scheduled project: A shrine to the Locas of Love and Rockets...

ha ha ha...thanks! Yeah, I was acctually having a burrito from the taco shop, and brainstorming/looking through my craft supplies to see what to do for the swap your headin' up "ALter ego Swap" and It inspired me to get Crackin'. just a little something to keep my brain flowin'... I soooo wanted a mini "Jumpin'" Lowrider, but all the ones I collect were too big to fit. I just through a mini one in there, cause you can't have the "Homies" Kick it with out their Firme Ride... ha ha  Cheesy


and thanks to you guys too  amaryllisroze  and itscute!! Much appreciated! Grin
