Completed Medival Blacksmith (TGB Miniatures.1/10)

    Country:
    South-Korea
    Medival Blacksmith
    1/10 scale
    Resin figure
    Painted & supervised by Ki-yeol Yoon
    Sculpted by Greeny Ahn

    And here is short writing to inspiration.

    A middle age smithy. Murky and dusky. Wheezing bellows and silence of charcoal in a burning brazier. A solid anvil and an old blacksmith.
    The blacksmith put iron into the brazier with sooty tongs. Flame of charcoal. Blowing bellows makes the flame rising. Black iron glows dim as the setting sun. But soon it turns to bright yellow, and finally it shines brilliantly than the gold does. It is the time.
    He just hit the glowing iron. Sparks flared. A thousand, or thousands of it in a day. Folding, drawing, forging the iron and forging it again. Hundreds of them in a year. Just a hit only makes a noise. Despite that, he has smitten iron softly for dozens of years, and this continued forging has imprinted patience in numberless pieces of the iron. In this routine but solemn work, we can find what resolute means. Therefore, with a million, perhaps with millions of forging, he has imprinted the passage of time for himself.
    Stiff gloves that shared the beginning of his history had gone, and he does not know when he wore this worn and creased gloves for first time. But his wrinkles that a red-hot iron lights proves his history. And again, he put cooled iron into the brazier.
    (written by Greeny Ahn & YKH)

    We hope make your own story through the figures.
    Many Thanks,
    TGB Miniatures.

    Very nice bust, beautifully sculpted and indeed painted, and a subject that I've often hoped to see in a figure, but I don't see anything about it that places this piece in the Medieval period. This smithy could be a currently working one, which is ok too...but Medieval?
    Great bust though.

    I can see what you mean there Mark I guess the cowl marks it as more medieval, but it's a lovely piece and as you say could easily be from anywhere from dark age up to modern day very easily. Great sculpt and paint job IMO (y)

    Absolutely love it. A fantastic sculpt, full of character and something a bit different. I reckon this will be a winner.

    Very nice work. I'm impressed with the painting, the sweat in the neck and running down the arm looks very convincing.
