To Become a God

"Journeying into the deep forgotten undergrowth of the forest, the explorers happen upon their quarry at last. The Great Altar and portal to the next realm; the center of the once magnificent empire, brought down by greed, on a quest to become gods. Those who carry the rod of sunlight are said to activate the door to the next world, granting ascension to a higher plane of reality."

The altar textures are inspired by the gold patterns of Gustav Klimt- most of this scene was sculpted in VR using Oculus Medium.
