    @Roc: Thank you very much for your kind words. I really appreciate it.

    @Ernest: Thanks my friend. I´m glad you like it.

    About the bible: The base is plastic sheet. Then I sculpted the first half of the book with Magic Sculp. After drying I sculpted the second half. The booksides in the middle I have printed with the PC. I found the sides in the web when I was searching about informations about Lindisfarne, wich was atacked by the vikings in the year 870 a. D.

    Here you can find the sides I have used:

    And here are some details about the bible:

    Markus,
    fantastic work! I have this figure on the shelf, I can hear it calling to me. One of my all-time favorites. You did it justice for sure. You and Ernesto have set the bar for me! The bible is FANTASTIC!! A great idea, and very well executed. Good work!
