Are there Original pictures of that fort Wolfgang? That gate looks so unreal in that part of the world.

BTW the fort is impressive! :thumbup:

Excellent fortress building. Is this Patricks and Dani's work again?
Fascinating to see the upper part of the walls looks like a wooden mould filled with sand and rubble. Is that to absorb the impact of balls and shells?

Peter I had exactly those thoughts here.
Both gates look extremely expensive and monumental for North East America in that century. But I can be wrong.

@Roland

Roland, fantastic painting!

@Peter/Mr. Cryns


This is the work from Patrick. Patrick has changed the main gate again. This is now easier.

Pictures are available later.

best regards and a happy new year,

Wolfgang

Roland, this is a very successful work. For my eyes the clothing shines silky as in reality. And the colors remind of fabrics that I saw during some visits to museums. Very nice, really...

The photographs are not so good, the gold-Effekt isn´t that loud in reality. Its gold-woven fabric. Image

The name of the fabric is "brocade". Very popular in France and for french people in that time. The faces were whitened with powder or white make-up. So they looked very pale. the hair was powdered too, or they are wearing wigs, in the 70s the male begun to show their natural hair, if it was possibel to make curls or a woven pigtail,, very "modern" guys wore ponytail-Style - exactly, as Rüdiger Fischer sculpted them. delicious figures.

I like it very much Roland.
Were the hands powdered white too?
And also when they lived in such a fortress in the middle of nowhere without ladies around?
For a few days I was wondering who sculpted and casted these figures.

I should have known by now it was Herr Fischer because he appears to be the specialist maestro of this period in our scale.
Well done both of you.

Just like in 'our' 70's :-D
Thanks for this info, I did not know until now when wigs turned into real hair again.

Men are not made for women...it was noblesse oblige, a demonstration of power. They,wore gloves, mostly. And Ladies will follos. Do you know the movie "Revolution" with Al Pacino and Nastassja Kinski? One of the best concerning clothes!

A wonderful project and figure-production! It´s a pity that there are still only few offers of civilian figures of the 17th and 18th century or the Napoleonic period. I think that an interest exists to have more civilian figures ...
Please continue ....
