This scene required the use of a figure, preferably in "stared at" mode and indeed with the right angle, she fit the bill perfectly. Lucky for me, I didn't have to paint her full face or front since she'll only be visible from the backside. I have painted 1/35 figures and the hardest part by far is the eyes and eye details. I was able to evade that this time.
Here you can see the view through the opening and the stairs leading to the next level.
Wonder who did these art pieces? Hm...
For these lights, I retro-fitted them with a tiny nano LED light so it'll last forever. You can't see that tiny wire from the front (the only viewpoint when the project is completed.)
