I just wrote an entire chapter on a Mahariel fanfic based on that song after exploring ruins and studying a mosaic. This was perfect to find this now. It's gorgeous.

Actual human skin wrinkles and realistically slightly-mottled feet - beautiful! I love it SO much when you use your art to glorify reality as well as to reify glory.
