MITHRAS!
A small landscape experiment build way back in 2010, early December to be precise. It’s like ancient history,no? No, I guess not.
About this creation

Here we see three mythical Mithras in their native environment, a rocky cave. Don't worry about where the rest of the cave is people, just go with it.



Crystals surround them and a strange, neon green liquid flows through the cave.



The liquid is what forms the crystals, as it hardens over centuries, it leaves behind crystals of all colors. The Mithras then gather up the crystals and sell them to the Hard Knocks Gang to enhance their rather dubious pleasures. What is that you say? With all these fine neon colors there should be UV light?



YOU ARE CORRECT! When the light in the cave fades, the neon liquid glows like Parrington Levens sheets under blacklight.



Yes, it seems to be our only trick, using UV light, but this time we have added a little something extra:



The cave of the Mitras is unstable, and from deep in the Earth’s crust, lava boils. Sometimes the glow from the lave shines up through the crystalline formations within the cave. Now, wasn’t that just the bee’s knees?




Final shot without UV and showing the fine glow. (Two Lego light up bricks, in case you were curious, or too drunk to figure it out on your own….I’m looking at you Heath).


Dem Notes: These pics have been on my computer for a bit and I thought it was high time to post them. Hope you enjoyed them, and if not, well then that was five minutes of your life you will never get back…..MWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!.

Quoting Aaron ("The Lego Soldier") Sheesh thats a cool build. Hi Mr. Bones, I'm Aaron and I'm kind of new here. I'm glad to say that YOU are one of my favorite builders. Also, I put you in one of my MOC's (you should check it out) and I was wondering if that was fine with you.
Not a problem and thank you. I will go have a look.

Quoting Stuart Delahay Very nice, but wasn't Mithras an ancient sun god? Or was it something from dungeons and dragons (I cannot distinguish between them)? Regardless me likee.
HAHA, close. Mitras was a god that became popular with the Roman military around the first century CE. A cult basically. Strangely enough, Mitras was believed to have been born of rock and held services in underground temples, hence, rock monsters. What? Too much info?

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 i m equipped with light bricks too, but, you used them in a very interesting way! i guess the power miners kits would have benefitted a concept like that! because it looks fantastic, the variations are quite different from each other, to create various effects, very cool! i intended to use mine for buildings mostly, now, i have other options, thanks bones! experimenting makes life interesting!
Thanks! I do love those light bricks.

Quoting Blake Baer Hey Dan, I haven't had a chance to check out your stuff in a while so I popped over. This is stunning. Simply gorgeous. The trans elements are fantastic! The overall effect has a very nice feel to it. Brilliant creation. Secondly I noticed your blog. That is perhaps the best idea since sliced bread. I am definitely going to refer to that for various buying options. Great work.
Thanks Blake! Always good to hear from you again.

I recently did a MOC-off with Ribbits M., and both of us have posted our entries. I am asking all of the MOColympics judges to judge our entries, and If you accept, please respond in the quest10ns thread of the MOColympics group. If all of the judges accept, I will post links to both mine and Ribbits' entries in the group.

Those 5 minutes were well spend - I'm always drawn to bright colours. The first 2 thoughts I had were 'Ghostbusters' and the old 'Slime' toy. Great idea with the additional lava.
