Enough updates have been made to the Noru galleries at this point to seemingly justify more blog posts devoted to the subject. The basic set up of the two main galleries in my Noru parcels, however, still remains quite similar to that in Ichalon, where they also coexisted together long enough to make a 10 part series of posts on them (Icalon Galleries 1-10, presently found on the 2nd page of the Edwardston Station Gallery category). In other words, I don’t see the need to create a whole new tour of the two galleries since a complete overhaul hasn’t been effected since the older tour was created. So let’s focus on the updates in these newer 5 posts on the Edwardston Station Gallery and the Temple of TILE.
Let’s start with the beam in spot for the Temple of TILE. I’ve moved this entrance point in the gallery back to the bottom floor of 8; for a time in Noru, I had it on the 4th, just so it would be more central within the rather complex temple layout. Maybe I’ll move it back, but for now it’s on the 1st, as it was in Ichalon as well. One has the Asylum created magazine stand and drink machines surrounding the entry point, along with an updated sign giving a picture of the whole Noru gallery complex instead of just the temple itself.
In turning around, Karoz sees the particle red African butterflies that populated at least the Otherland version of the temple on this floor as well. With them this time are some particle ferns…
… and on the opposite side of the lower floor, some particle snapdragons, which I may or may not keep there long term. All of these particle rezzers are owned by Baker Blinker, who, fortunately, also has the power to manifest objects on the Noru properties, as can all family members.
Then I decided to make the red wall of this central temple chamber extend down a full 10 meters to match the green and blue walls also in this central region. This makes the set-up more like the original version of the temple, such as pictured here in Rubi.* This is the way it looked before my modification.
I’ve also opened up some of the walls more to allow for additional Edna photographs to be hung, such as the nice one of Granddaddy Mtn. below. Presently there are about 55 photographs in the structure, compared with 100 collages in the Edwardston Station Gallery. I’m planning to add about 6-10 more, though, and the situation, at least, is much better than before the updates, when only about 35 photographs were on display in the temple. Too few, and also spaced too far apart. I think it looks considerably better now.
Another created opening, but the added canvas slotted into the new space remains blank for now.
Floor 2, which can only be reached from Floor 3 practically speaking, now contains a number of additional photographs around the perimeter of the central area containing the tyle cube and linden tree. These are all from Herman Park again, as are the ones on floor 1. However, these photographs deal directly with TILE Creek in this case. They’re also all from this blog, and snapped by me, baker b., instead of Edna. This first one Karoz is staring directly at here from up the ramp is of the Mmmmmm’s First Tree, described in this post from last year.
From Jonesborough this time, the site of most of the Salad Bar Jack in the River of TILE related posts.
And then New Hope, separated from Jonesborough by The Wilderness, famous as the location for the last battle of the last war fought by the toy avatars, according to Hucka D. and also Grassy Knoll (there’s a reason they should know!)
Actually, Karoz is turning his head toward the only picture of TILE Creek itself in the temple in the below snapshot. This is near Rez Rock, where both the group led by T-Bonz and also the 2nd group of toy avatars headed by Gene Fade (I believe) first manifested in that particular dimension within the context of the Salad Bar Jack in The River of TILE movie. Check the Toy Avatar category for more information on that (go to the older posts).
* I’m also reminded through this picture from Rubi that the central Tyle Cube use to spin atop a lemon tree in older temple versions instead of the present linden or lime tree.
