Deep inside the city of Dalmunutha, capital of Loreos, stands the proud palace of Prince Lorean. Built after he conquered the petty states and founded the principality of Loreos. He constructed this domicile to endure the test of time and stand as a monument to the triumph and glory of the Loreesi.
Another jaw-dropping build, man. The recessed ceilings are perfectly detailed and that's the best use of the lion gargoyles I've seen yet. The stained glass windows are awesome and I love the shot with the light behind them. The floor tiles are great - is that SNOTing? Keep the awesome builds coming.

I think that second and fourth photos are particularly good. The stained glass in the darkness and the effect of looking up into the room are both wonderful. I like the use of the bannisters in the cornice too.
Great NPU for all the architectural elements! But to those others who commented... I believe the term buttress is used primarily for outside supports? Anyhoo, wouldn't this be magnificent as a large build! :)
Saw this on Flickr, but can't remember if I commented or not, so without further ado: Great job Mark! The lighting effect is very cool, as are the pillars and buttresses. A nice clean little build you've got here!
Wow! This piece of architecture is fantastic! I agree with Matthew on many counts, especially on the mosaics and pillars. Btw, would mind giving some of my less-popular stuff some CC? (note: I'm not a halo kiddie or anything, I don't even LIKE sci-fi.)
Amazing Mark! This is just stunning! I love your architecture! You should do it more often! :D The stained glass windows look great, and the mosaics on the floor just add to the effect. Your pillars are magnificent! I love how you used those curved fences for an arch. Good luck!
I never tire of seeing a new Erickson MOC show up on this site. I'm always amazed at how quickly you're able to get such high quality work done. I think you must have the cobbler's little helper elves that show up and build these things for you while you're sleeping;) This is another major win for you. I love the fact that you can take a corner of a palace and make it so meaningful. I feel like I can picture the room that surrounds it. The stained glass windows look great, and the floor tiles are brilliant. I also love the shaping of the pillars. The whole work makes me think of something one might find in Hogwarts. Very well done, as always, Mark.
