@ Tamtam wow that mayan structure looks sick and maybe what it is im looking for to create hiding places for my fish. Might create that instead of buying rocks. Does anyone think this is a better idea than using rocks if i recreate this and add it to the sides of the pyramid?

A mayan ball court would tie into the theme well since it has a direct relationship to the calendar.

oh ouch. That's a kick in the pants. Pretty awesome that you could redo it so fast though.

It's really awesome looking. Love the idea. It's different but still has a natural look to it. The calendar is a pretty sweet score

Stunning work! What did you use for the background? Can understand how Tulum inspired you I was there on my Honeymoon a few years, what a place - the beach wasn't bad beside it either! I hope you went to Xel-Ha when you where in the area.

I seriously just think this is so cool. Wish I was talented enough to do something like this. lol

I've also seen these really neat columns that may interest you. They wouldn't really offer any shelter though.
