Paradise Circus – The Steeple & Banners


The Paradise Circus is a mash-up of confession booth, cathedral steeple and circus tent. At least, that's my intention. The structure is designed so that the roof is very tall, resembling a church steeple but with all the eye-catching merriment of a circus or carnival. The steeple exteriors are mostly complete as I write this. 

Attached to the peak of the steeple will be canvas banners with images advertising more of the make-believe circus acts. My favorites so far: "The Four Horsemen – Together! See them leap the Burning Bush" and "Heretics Burned Daily!"
