Hypatia, I'm really happy I could do this for you.  The build and the presentation you gave about it sparked my imagination and inspired me to do it.

Addendum: the ladies also drop from the spout in the central pool... but that script was so fragile I had to go and turn it on again every day. ;)  No one knows quite what they signify, but they are shown floating down these almost organic pipes and landing in pools of green water. The books I made link to the Beinecke Library site where you can page through all the folios.  There are very few identifiable plants, and no one has been able to decipher the writing.

Apollo! I'm so thrilled with this! You did a marvelous job. The music is perfect.  Just as I imagined it.  And this is the VERY FIRST TIME that any thing I built had a machinima made of it.  Now I know what it feels like.  Thank you so much for preserving its memory so beautifully. 

   Celestial... yeah, strange how much that manuscript and its drawings have compelled me over the years. Anybody who wants to wear an incomprehensible word over their head (besides their group name ha!) ask me. :)  I have qoTTecg and VogTTccPg and SaraSoTcgc  .....Or a little shower of naked ladies.... :)
