I'm particularly proud of the judgment seat itself:

Enjoy!

Very nice. I like the architecture, and of course, the seat!

I'm just curious. I am not particularly familiar with the BoM in its entirety, where is this seat supposed to have been (ie context/ethnae)

The Book of Mormon. I've been working on illustrating the thing for... wow, it's already been over a year! :shock: I'll be finishing soon, though. :)

Throughout much of their history, the Nephites were ruled by judges, rather than kings. So the judgment seat would have been the equivalent of a throne, basically.

I'm not that good at explaining things, so I'm hoping that's the answer you were looking for. If not, I'd be happy to chat via PM. :)

Thanks for the kind words!

Very nice. The judgment seat looks very cool, with the head piece on the back.

I think you were asking about the historical or ethnic context, right? I share your lack of familiarity with the BoM, but according to what I do know, the BoM describes the Nephites as a culture of peoples in the Americas who originated partially from a lost tribe of Israel who came across the Atlantic. (IIRC, Jesus is described as visiting the Nephites after his resurrection.) Thus the Meso-American look and feel to this MOC, I believe.
:)

Nathan, I do like the Judgement Seat, and your construction of the steps and arch are also interesting.

I really like that arch construction. The alternating blocks and colums looks suprisingly good. Also those green round bricks at the top add a nice touch of color and variation to the wall.

Very cool, I echo what has been said- the construction of the columns is great, as is that of the arches. Still not sure what it's from, though... Anyway, good job.
...and that's how Equestria was made!
