About the Pieces:

Done as an interior art piece for a friend's roleplaying system, Gods & Heroes. He wanted an art piece that was reminiscent of Greek or Roman architecture. I thought it would be interesting to leave the title vague and ambiguous.

Were the worshipers at this temple abandoned by their deities, and thus the people let their grand temples fall into ruin? Or did the people continue praying, their pleas unheard, and as they passed, the temple slowly reflected the state of the once great civilization?


About the Artist:

Paul and his brother Michael opened Aradani Studios in 2002, selling both their artwork and costuming as they travelled all across the US. Paul’s medium of choice is charcoal, a passion he discovered in college. He loves the fluidity of it, the ease of moving it across the page with a simple gesture, and on the flipside, the challenge of it, such a simple gesture can also erase hours of painstaking detail. Paul’s work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare. He currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he, his brother, and sister continue to expand and build their elf ear empire. You can see his artwork at
