    Tahnk you all guys..
    And a great hug to you Ian , hope to see you soon again ..

    @ Romque
    About the threes .. You are right , the threes are smaller than they are use to be . But this is due only for pratical needs. A very tall three , is almost impossible to place on a vignette . The height of the work would be impossible to hanlde, and, in my opinion, un-artistic.
    Even at this lenght , the total height oh my work is close to 15 inch, including base. If Taller would be impossible to place in a transport case or in a showcase.

    Greetings Nello:

    Wow, what you have attempted here is very complex, IMHO.
    Composition-wise there are so many areas where you could
    have failed in your decision making, as to where you put each
    piece; as to how many and how tall the trees would be in
    relation to the figures, the deer. And to me you passed every
    composition problem with flying colours. Obviously, from
    looking at the choices you made regarding space relationship
    one piece of the composition toward another — along with your
    obvious sculpting skills — it is clear you are an artist and have
    the eye of a very skilled artist regarding presentation.
    I see what you're doing as very difficult to pull off. I applaude
    your courage and congratulate you on this lovely, very
    creative and artistic presentation. And it isn't even painted

    Hi Nello,
    I have always liked this period in history and this magnificent composed piece just fortifies and renews my interest. Every picture tells a story and you are a great story teller.
    Wonderful work(y) , like the rest look forward to seeing this one painted.

    This is a an excellent vignette, beautifully executed and presented.
    Unfortunately you may cop some abuse from some members here who are a little sensitive about hunting.
    I hope not, because it's a great piece of modelling. Well done.
