They look very African and primeval, considering the vivid colors and the shapes, thus it should be easy enough to spot the place, because in very few cases and places aboriginal civilizations had the need to autonomously build a state and stone buildings over there ...

Great textures and colors. My interp is a donkey on the left and a woman on the right bearing a basket on her head somewhere in old Mexico.

Oh, Joshua fit de battle o' Jerico. . .

It's a fascinating image. Seems both profound and amusing.

The whimsey factor is as a result of the vertical towers looking like a rough frayed fabric legging and sort of weird toes for one of the monsters in Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are"

http://openbooksociety.com/article/maurice-sendak-wild/

I think The profound part is the loose arcane symbols which give it an intramural, house divided, multiple agenda/allegiance/tools/deities/levels kind of thing with the intractability of those invested in either process. Plus all the accretions on those symbols like barnacles on an old ship that no one bothers to maintain any more. From a moldy tarot card found floating face down near the rushes and the alligators.

It's like "My father's Tower of Babel has many rooms. . ." but the maid took the last few chapters off.

An intriguing spin. A tale to tell, sell, spell, or fell.

Interesting to look at.

Eighty+,silvy, and D Akey.. thanks for your great comment here..definitely has a whimiscal quality with the "toes"...graphically they just had to me ( for me ) but when I saw them I didn't know whether to toss this one or just laugh.. and post it and see what you all thought...glad I did..;);):D
