I made the image above sometime in the early 2000s. I like it to this day. The two inspirations were the work of James Casebere, and the film, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Casebere creates meticulous small-scale models of environments and/or architecture. He subsequently photographs the models resulting in powerful imagery. I used craft-store pompoms and scrapbooking paper to suggest the temple, Indy, and his idol. The result was just so-so imagery.
