Well, after several weeks of work, the first "real" article concerning Breath of the Wild is up; it concerns the real-world influences that Jōmon (縄文) pottery and culture had upon the in-game realm of Hyrule in ancient times.
This article was intensely satisfying and fascinating to write, and I must say that I learned quite a bit. As we know, with every new piece of knowledge comes the realization of the bounds of ignorance: the more we know, the more we know that we don't know.
All that aside, the article has been published under the appropriate heading, and I hope you all find it interesting. I am continually moved by the realization that these forms are just now coming to new life after many thousands of years. This depth of time is really affective, when given the appropriate reflection.
If you find any mistakes in spelling, formatting, punctuation, or grammar, please write and let me know. Let's strive for excellence.
Sheikah Art and Architecture
The universe of The Legend of Zelda is replete with multifarious architectural oddities, beautiful and resonating structures, and ineffably-mysterious temples hidden in the remote corners of the world. It is my hope to explore said places, shedding light upon some of their salient features, and fulfilling the goals laid out by the introduction, the main goal of which is to help people understand and appreciate the unspoken, yet deeply-felt, allure of these locations and structures.
