IM SCREAMING OVER THAT FLORAL DESIGN ON THE DOOR OH MY GOSH IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AAAAAAAAAA

I just. I just love floral designs. Especially on architecture. It's a calling to my culture's history AAAAAAAAAA, also I like the touch of the temple being carved into the mountain side!

tbh, just out of the need to nerd out, I'll take this chance to divulge that I've based Suman architecture off multiple things. I derive it as much as possible from ancient architecture shown in a few locations on the Mist Continent which has no claim canonically. What is available for derivation already seems to reference things that I've incorporated into the architecture as well:

- Sumerian, primarily adopting cuneiform
- Mayan, especially with the scary looking faces carved out of stone on pillars and walls
- Indian, mostly based from Buddhist and Hindu concepts such as a variation off depictions of Apsaras and holy figures, also the complex megalithic structures carved out of entire mountains
- Irish-Gaelic, specifically the use of knots and Ogham which I've combined with cuneiform.

There are a whole bunch of other factors going into Suma's culture, but I won't talk about it here because the subject is architecture xD
But putting it simply, while Suman culture is primarily referring to Mesopotamian elements, it's more like both a blend of and deviation from real world ancient cultures.

So who knows, maybe it'll resonate with a whole bunch of people with different backgrounds xD (that would be nice) or maybe it won't. I know I injected some Gaelic because of some phenomena I noticed in FFIX and also because I just wanted to be able to relate.
