Parts of the Set
EntranceThe entrance to the temple measures approximately 9 cm (3.5") high and 11 cm (4.5") wide. It features four small statues at the top, along with Blackwood's raven. It also features a toad at the front and a skeleton at the side. There are two flick-fire missiles at the top, with pale, transparent blue globes at the front. At either side are two staffs which hold flames.
This part of the set is based upon the dark, shadowy corner of Blackwood's temple. In the 2009 film, there is an alcove above this area, and it is here that Holmes and Watson are reunited before they enter the temple itself, just after the defeat of the guard. This is also where LeStrade enters the temple to arrest Blackwood and the rest of the guards.
The altar of the temple measures approximately 14 cm (5.5") high, 6.5 cm (2.5") wide, and 14.5 cm (5.5") deep. It features several skull panels, and other stone-like panels of various colours. It also has several flames around it. There are also two swords above the space between the altar and the bed, where Blackwood would stand, and a pull at the back of the altar to release them. The bed is curved at the edges and has a stone pillow for the sacrifice.
This part of the set is based upon the centre of the temple, where Blackwood was sacrificing the woman, and the large altar at the back of the temple. In the film, the altar had skull-like shapes carved into it, and was obviously chosen for the sacrifice because of these. The bed is where the sacrifice was poisoned and tricked into trying to kill herself with the dagger. Blackwood would stand in the space between them, at the side of the pipe that connects the two parts.
