Fractal temple

In this raytraced image by unknown author we can see a strange sea temple. The temple consists of many similar platforms of various sizes. Every platform stands on four squared columns. The main cupola of the temple stands on platform which in one's turn stands on four platforms raised from water. There are four platforms smaller size on every of these main platforms with cupolas smaller size. Also, there are four platforms even smaller size on these small platforms and so on. This is a fractal temple with infinite count of cupolas!

It's funny you didn't realize who he was, because his name & copyright is actually a part of the image.

Hint: look in the lower right hand side. It's spelled out right there.
