Playa Ruins, by Quentin Davis - see

Playa ruins is vernacular architecture for tiny ancient people. Made from the materials at hand, playa and water, these tiny people built a grand edifice which has withstood this harsh desert for eons. Standing five feet tall, it was a Herculean task for these tiny people who stood no more than 3" tall.
