This explorer is supposed to be freaked out by the ancient colossus gazing out of the sand before him.

I admit that it would be more realistic if the paint on the sculpture was mostly blown off by centuries of wind erosion, just like the paint that once coated the Sphinx in Giza. On the other hand I felt that keeping the paint on would bring it to life and make it more uncanny from the explorer's perspective.
