Lethe
The Lethe, river of forgetfulness, winds through the cave of Hypnos and across the plains of Hell. It is here that spirits come, drinking deep of its waters and forgetting their mortal lives. Atop his cave, Hypnos dreams.
About this creation
One of the five rivers of Hell. Made for a collaboration with Mihai Marius Mihu. Please see the pictures in all of their glory on flickr here: The Rivers of Hell



"Within the abyss, Lethe, measureless in sweep, glides smoothly on with placid stream, and takes away our cares; and, that there may be no power to retrace the path, with windings manifold it takes its sluggish way…” Seneca, Hercules Furens 679 ff (trans. Miller)


“Near the Cimmerii a cavern lies deep in the hollow of a mountainside, the home and sanctuary of lazy Hypnos, where Phoebus’ beams can never reach at morn or noon or eve, but cloudy vapours rise in doubtful twilight . . .” Ovid, Metamorphoses 11. 602 ff (trans. Melville)


“They are the souls who are destined for Reincarnation; and now at Lethe's stream they are drinking the waters that quench man's troubles, the deep draught of oblivion . . . " Virgil, Aeneid 6. 705 ff (trans. Day-Lewis)

This is beautiful, and melancholy, in a perfectly creepy way.

Attention in the Ready Room…The rules for the third iteration of Decisive Action have just been posted in the DA3 Ready Room. We built the Ready Room so motivated competitors could study the DA3 rules and gain understanding before the game begins on 7 April 2018. Well, the rules are now posted. So report to the Ready Room. Get the information, get your head in the game, and above all… get ready. Build! Post! Review! Attack! This is Decisive Action.

Shaping isn't easy, but that's one of the best examples I've seen. Great job!

Exceptional creativity and, as usual, the detail and organic structures are spot on.
