Great detail, Steve! (all that said - it's hard for me to read the name of the faith without thinking of Bali Hai wine, the first cheap alcoholic drink I ever threw up)

The intricate details are amazing. It makes me think of the lazer patterns cut out on paper. If you have ever seen greeting cards that way. Incredible architecture, I have never seen anything like it.
