Going to create an astrolabe as my artifact. These tools were mind-blowing tech for its time. For a quick rundown of how it works, Main purpose was for navigation

Background:

Set in the 1300s.

The Knights Templar (KT) travelled the globe in an attempt to store treasures acquired over time.The KT discovered nz through the use of an astrolabe. The KT stored their vast amounts of treasure here in nz at various locations. The aggressive natives also acted as a deterrant for foreign voyagers seeking treasure so the KT felt this would allow them to store their treasures
without fear of theft from pirates, etc.

The astrolabe has two distinguishing features:

1.elaborate design. Craftmanship is of the highest quality. Brass/Gold design. Emblazened with jewels to showcase KT wealth.

2. The astrolabe contains symbolism consistent with freemasonry and KT. cross, freemason symbol.

Legend has it that the astrolabe contains engraved symbols/codes which give the co-ordinates of the hidden treasures around new zealand and possibly the location of the holy grail.

gutted that work commitments have hampered my progress in this project. could have been different if i had this idea from the beginning but i will continue this project at some other time.

cheers worzel! think its a worthwhile project to continue work on. Currently refining design in photoshop as we speak. Blocked out major shapes in Blender as there isn't really much change. Its more the finer details. Congrats to everyone that contributed to this comp.
