Roman Villa, Final Installment

This afternoon I finished the last two pieces for the villa. 

The first, the statue, is just a bit of fun. For this I took an old Asterix centurian figure and added a base. A few coats of white and a brown wash and it was done. It sits quite nicely in the courtyard, but could just as easily be positioned outside the main gate.





Second is a small vineyard. Some eight or ten years ago I made these masters up and had them cast They have been sitting in a box ever since. It seemed fitting that they should be used here.

    1. Thanks Phil. Delete avoided! The vineyard has come out so well that I am going to use the remaining pieces to make up another on for myself.
