Sanctum of Inner Piece

That’s right, there’s a pun in the title! *puts his bad joke hat down* Ninjago, in my opinion, does not get enough buildings as official sets. Luckily for us, there are people like Rollon Smith, who help ease the pain. This particular creation of his even includes a detailed terrain – something you don’t often see in official sets.

Snake Samouraï Temple

This build is just so full of small details! And so many printed/sticker-ified pieces and, interestingly enough, some parts you don’t come across that often anymore. Like the pieces used to build the windows of the temple. The surrounding walls have a really nice motifs, made out of old snake parts. But beyond all that, the main reason I like this build so much is that it tells a story. The characters look alive and are included superbly. I especially like the guy harvesting rice? cutting reeds? I guess it’s up to the viewer’s interpretation. Like all art should be.

Harvesting rice? Cutting reeds? Why, clearly that man is walking on water 😉 .

Woah, so he’s like a guardian entity then? 😀

ICEE what you did there. It is a sweet little build, lots of great detail. Though why Cole and Nya would be hanging around a snake shrine is beyond me-unless it’s snake villains time again?

You need to know your enemy in order to defeat them! But Sun Tzu put it down much more eloquently:

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

(Thank you Sabaton!)
