But this time by me.
It's a Death depiction inspired by the jamesian tale The stalls of Barchester Cathedral which I suppose everyone here knows very well. Made by the so-called cold porcelain and painted to make it look like wood ( a real piece of wood would have been much better, I suppose...but this would be beyond my skills, at the moment ! ). It's about 22 cm./8.58 inches.

In another thread I asked for suggestions . This time, due to the fact I have built the item myself, I'm open to suggestions on how to make it "special" ( whatever this can mean... ) if I had to create another one. I'm thinking of 'the Cat' from the same tale.

Nice work. Adding the usual PK device within the base is one of the easiest modifications. Maybe in such a way that it can turn in the direction you want. Like that old robot question game where it would point to the right answer. I still cant figure out how it worked Smile And to be honest I don't want to.

Thanks for your suggestion, Jambo Smile
This could be a possibility. Another one I thought of could be "incorporating" a little production box in the plinth of the statue, where to make appear, say, the secret menacing poem buried inside the sculpture from the original plot. I have no idea if this is doable, though.

If Hannibal can cross the Alps from Italy with an elephant then it must be possible. Go for it. (By the way - how is the skiing?)

Or if you are using a table cloth, a plate lifter would also do the trick.
