    Hi all, following on from the advice of Devil's Own and Patty Pickaxe, I spent some time trying to improve the Ankh which looked abit lonely on its own.

    Also I wanted to add a bit of colour as the stones on tower rooves( how do you spell that roofs? lol) just look dark and dismal.

    So what better way to warm it up but with a volcano :D

    I also added abit of greenery, however I am still thinking it is abit dark and could use more colour, what do you think.

    I am also thinking of changing the light blue nets as I think they are a bit glaring on the eye...any thoughts?

    So here was the original

    Here is the newer version

    And here is a close up of the volcano (I'm not sure how to get better pictures...apologies for it being abit blurred)

    It's a pity that I cant show the animation... it uses the flickering flame of the fire pit and the buzzing bees of the honey jar to represent the frothing of the lava.

    Oh can I steal that for my Halloween deco? (No contest entry, promise!) I have changed out my water ponds to lava but they are SO bland. I've never wanted or needed a fire elemental statue before. That looks really great. :)

    Thought about replacing the two flying rocks above the lava with black pumpkins, but it would take ages to put it together again lol.
