The Apex Invitational Build contest is an opportunity for Minecraft makers to create the most gorgeous environments in a 501px plot of land. The winners of the tournament have just been announced, and good lord were there some stunning entries.

The winner of the competition – only $US200 – was Dr_Bond, who created what they called a “Perfect Marionette”:

“At the center of the piece sits the girl, holding what seems to be a glass ball; however the item is of no significance,” the description for the creation, which took four days to build, says.

“It is whatever you desire that she holds, whatever signifies your achievement. A reflection of perfect beauty. The puppeteer looms over her, representing the many conditions and emotions one is controlled by as they embark on their own odyssey.”

The second and third place entries were gorgeous in their own right, too. Thomasesc recreated a paleolithic era scene, complete with voxel woolly mammoths:

And Udvio remade a futuristic, industrial world where the development of anti-matter led to the end of humanity:
