This personal project is inspired by a short story by H.P. Lovecraft called "The nameless city." Our group of interstellar explorers land on an unknown planet and discover an abandoned shrine. After a quick discussion, they decide to explore the temple and descent into the darkness.

In this scene, the explorers have decided to walk to the shrine and explore it. It seems like those alien lifeforms are growing up from the ground, almost fleeing from something beneath them. But our group is confident in their skills and advances further to the entrance.
