    Hi friends represents one of the last works. King of souvenirs 1/9
    I was inspired by the famous photograph of an Australian soldier, he collection of souvenirs from German soldiers. Therefore, wears a german hat and carries German helmet full of small souvenirs and hand holding a German Iron Cross.
    I hope you enjoy.

    Brilliant sculpt.
    I can see that some people might find it a bit tasteless ...... but scavenging has always taken place post battle.
    Been back a few times to look at this and its more impressive each time .
    Googled his story, sad maybe but it sure was a life lived.
    Cheers

    Curious that he has a bit of a scowl on his face. With all that loot he ought to be smiling :D!

    This is a really neat looking piece, well executed, and I'd like one (y)!

    I agree with Joe, Excellent fig, but a smile would seem to be more appropriate to the pose. Well done!

    (y) Something new on the market... Great idea, Palo! (y)
    Tak ten se opravdu povedl. A opět (jako ostatně vždy ;)) má v sobě duši. Tedy já bych to tak řekl, nevím, jak lépe to vyjádřit.

    Now that is strange I was just looking at a book with the very picture in ...apparently nothing was safe from this man .....the spoils of war eh!

    A fine looking sculpt indeed with the various additions ...surely it must be heading commercial ...hope so

    Definitely agree about it making a good full figure ...maybe My mate Jimbo will add his famous legs?

    Thanks for sharing

    Thank you for your opinions. Yes, this particular figure of WWI was contradictory. Illiterate guy, a lot of tattooed and one could call him a hyena, who picked the dead.
    But even this figure has his list on Wikipedia.
    And it's also a picture of the war.
    Its probably the only known photo of the famous, and I do not think that is the best smiles.

    And yet it was not released and already plus the legs? :(
    This is not too good for me(n)

    Wow many thanks for the great replies...it really is a great piece of sculpture by pavol.

    I just loved the picture and the fact the guy was a scouser ...near to where i live and the fact he was an aussie too was perfect.

    He looked a right miserable get tooo...a real person a real character and a real story from a very different war.

    Read about him he certainly was a charmed character and perfect for a bust by pavol

    Thank you my friend

    Hi Guys ,

    Good to hear that this is for release and from Stormtroopers where I am sure we will see skilled casting bringing out the skilled sculpting.

    Look forward to seeing the release details

    Thanks to everyone involved in this piece

    He was a scouser first so maybe his habits came from there...he became an aussie so i dont think thats a fair comment. A grat character yes !!!
