On one of the day trips in the city, I found the fruit of a cypress-like tree but in a very small size.
They reminded me of a story I had heard in the distant past, about small domestic temples, which tribes in India, which were very far from the great temple, used to build from the fruit of a tree. They believed that these fruits carry within them a spirit of holiness.

Inspired by this story I built a homemade Indian temple from the fruit of the tree I found.
The fruits in the home temple cling to each other and form a small temple-like structure.
A number of fruits bear a kind of crown on their heads and mark a holy god. At the head of the temple stands the most holy God with a crown on his head.

The temple is built of 31 parts. Temple height 31 cm, width 17 cm. Dimensions of a single fruit 5-8 cm.
Each fruit is fortified before it becomes part of the temple.

And you didn’t even use a CNC machine.
