Splendid Figures. Yes Indeed :thumbup:

Both they and the recent Wind Mill question upon size and shape,did spark alive a memorable paper I wrote many years ago as I reviewed the famous book Don Quichotte,at The City Collage.
I alone was the only one to realise the hidden theme. It is revealed in brief below.

Don Quichotte
He perhaps was the boldest, bravest Knight of them all,
he being unafraid to suffer the caustic laughter of finger pointing people.
On the other hand, Sancho, his Page, and faithful Dementia Carer,
was not brave or bold at all,and so suffered greatly all those abrasive indignations. BB

Somewhere in La Mancha...
Even in a so small scale we can see that mixture of bravery and madness (was he really mad? How sad the lives of those men who never had his windmill) in the eyes of Don Quijote, patience and humility in Sancho Panza and the the typical resignation of the old horses in Rocinante.
Execellent work in a couple of loved characters.
Think we all the spanish speakers in the scale will be crazy to have a kit of Don Quijote and Sancho Panza.
