    This little fellow was made by the brilliant Ernst Veingart. As soon as I saw him I knew I had to have him. I bought two copies the other I will keep like the original as seen in this link of the green http://www.planetfigure.com/forums/showthread.php?t=41574
    but for this one I wanted to have a little more fun and show the monk doing something you wouldn't think a monk should do. I hand cut the cards from cardstock and painted them the best i could at that scale (54mm). The base is built using cork covered with acrylic gel medium and of course some water effects.

    Re: 52 card pickup a clever idea!!!

    OhMa'Gosh Michael:

    You've done it again. . . As Smeegle sez in the thread before mine, you have
    such a well developed creative imagination. It has been so much fun to see
    your development on this sight over the past couple of years.

    I thought your German "Evil Soul" bust was very creative, and so artistic,
    but this little gem is way up there on the artistic and creative scale. So much
    clever thinking, strong composition and unique presentation.

    Very good choice of colours as well. I would never have thought of that shade
    of blue-green for the backs of the cards. Wow. . . .
