Holy, epically magnificent! This Wondrous Ancient Temple is stunning and All of The God-like Statues look incredible! The designs, priests, citizens, explorers, interactions, arches, stairwells, structures, architecture, water pool, reflection, interactions, robes, garments, hoods, wings, symbols, expressions, poses, torches, smoke, sky, haze, mountains, hillside, flow, movement, effects, realisticness, perspective, atmosphere, hues, textures concept, composition, uniqueness, lighting, colors, style, and other details are also sensational! Amazingly radical work! :iconfantasticplz:

The pose of the statues jumped at me as well. They're almost default t-shaped poses. Could be a bit different, more natural, relaxed poses. Or showing some intent. Being inviting to those that are coming, courteous, welcoming giants looking down...
The architecture looks great, though.

Question about the posing:

Why are the statues so... unrealistically posed? It feels like they're T-poses from a video game, and they look rather uncomfortable. Are they meant to be aggressive guards? They have helmets but no weapons.

Overall it's a beautiful piece, in both full and thumbnail size. The lighting and realism are amazing. Just those poses make me wonder what is up with them.

Thank you,  very interesting opinion.  I've never thought about it from this angle.  The idea was to show defense guardians who protect us from evil,  but at the same time they show to us- you're welcome. Especially the main white angel. May be it was a bad idea trying to show these to ideas(protection and opennes) at the one sculpture. 
Any way I really appreciate your ideas!

First of all, great picture, I hope to also incorporate 3D into my work at some point in the future. Regarding the poses, it is possible to have them be both welcoming and protecting.
Google images of the Christo Redentor in Rio Dejaneiro and how they have his palms open facing forward. If you bent the elbows then it would seem more relaxed, but like you intuited naturally you want a more rigid pose if they're a protector. That's why I think the pose of the Christo Redentor is a good starting point.
Keep up the good work!

I think if they had their hands facing upwards, with their elbows closer to their body, it would be easier to understand that aspect. I couldn't find a good pose specifically standing up, but this direction of hands/arms…
