    The same Verdi that composed "the four seasons"?

    I really like that Sergei (y)

    (Not sure if it's an optical illusion, but the top hat looks a bit small particularly in profile)

    Cheers

    This is really an optical illusion. This is due to the volume hair. The cylinder was originally dressed on the head. After that, the hair and the docking space of the parts were made.

    That was Vivaldi.
    Verdi wrote Opera: see 'La Traviata', 'Rigoletto', 'Il Trovatore' and many others.

    Very good looking sculpt of a not very common subject, that I, personally would love to see more.
    Just two days ago, my old man went with my mom to watch one of Verdi's beautiful operas, Simon Boccanegra in the opera house in Tel Aviv.
    Is this going to be commercial?

    Nice likeness and interesting to see the two versions.

    Even so, I'd like to see one with him wearing his rather louche slouch (?) hat. Very Italian/bohemian looking.

    It would be easy to add it to the bare headed version.

  19. Thank you for your positive comments :)
    Unfortunately it is not easy to add any single variation in real production.
    But someone with sculpting skills can easily modify for sure the (no hat) version.
    Nice idea for sure ;)

    ... that's what I meant: add it to the fig (y)


    ... just realised that it would be better to substitute it for the top hat. If you did a temporary fix he could swap hats for weekdays vs sundays and opera nights :)
