the entrance steps are next to be plastered

the temperature inside is temperate in the arid landscape, with cool breezes floating through the vents

this is feeling like it could be a perfect meditation destination

the ceiling is a beautiful clay and straw

the other side of the dome has another bench, here use as an altar

a built in bench or altar sits waiting

the vaulted entrance feels earthy and organic, mystical

the dome is looking like chiseled rock

and the family of bears, in honor of the name of this place, arrives with a yucca plant

Yat Ping applies more lime wash to harden the clay surface

and then a prickly pear is mirrored on the entry vault

Yat Ping overlays more clay for relief figurines

a rabbit emerges on the dome
