I wrote a lot of stuff but everything got deleted for some reason. What a waste of time :(

But basically i compared the tunnels connected to the "hall of heads" to Fingal's Cave.

From Wikip:

Fingal's Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, known for its natural acoustics. The National Trust for Scotland owns the cave as part of a National Nature Reserve.[1] It became known as Fingal's Cave after the eponymous hero of an epic poem by 18th-century Scots poet-historian James Macpherson.

What's interesting:

Fingal's Cave is formed entirely from hexagonally jointed basalt columns within a Paleocene lava flow,[2] similar in structure to the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and those of nearby Ulva.

In all these cases, cooling on the upper and lower surfaces of the solidified lava resulted in contraction and fracturing, starting in a blocky tetragonal pattern and transitioning to a regular hexagonal fracture pattern with fractures perpendicular to the cooling surfaces.[3] As cooling continued these cracks gradually extended toward the centre of the flow, forming the long hexagonal columns we see in the wave-eroded cross-section today. Similar hexagonal fracture patterns are found in desiccation cracks in mud where contraction is due to loss of water instead of cooling.[4]

Now look at the screenshot from the movie, see the floor?

Look at this image:

Large masses must cool slowly to form a polygonal joint pattern, as here at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland

If I asked Fifield about this whole thing, he'd be telling me this place is volcanic.

With all due respect- As Ash asked, "What is the point"?

EDIT:

Your content did not post with the initial post. I see it now. Thanks.

Yes, that is a real close match to the patterns seen in the rock formation the temple seems to be cut into on Paradise MU/TH/UR.

I concur (volcanic rock) and I believe Sean Fifield would as well.

Hey that's some good work. I'd have never thought something like that existed on earth. Kinda wish his cave/lair was lit better as its so hard to see the detail.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
