The statue is a copy of a design by Leslawangelo (https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/lighthouse-495561/ ) because it was beautiful and way beyond what I could create.
The ring around the base was intended to look as if the water was pouring into the void but it didn't come out quite like I had hoped. I still like it, but it takes longer to build than anything else, which is why it is still under construction.
The fog effect I first saw in a Jerracraft video. It looks so cool but is incredibly expensive and requires optifine to look best. It's also not as cool if not viewed from above, but the room it's in I made too small to see it in full effect.
Thanks for checking out my build!
