I want to say " THANK YOU " to my friend Alex for sending to me the Mephistopheles figure.

The other 2 figures (Faust & Grechen) are slightly modified, 3D printed by Printle (via Shapeways).

My best wishes to us all!

Ah Goethes "Faust"...….Beautiful.....we had to read it in school. Very ingenious reading but also very exhausting.

This is art. Just superb! The attention to detail here is sublime. You manage to set a mood and it's easy to imagine a conversation happening. very poetic piece. I love your taste in basing, it brings everything all together yet sets it apart as a scene. Top shelf work sir!

Yet another fantastic result, suffused throughout with humanism in the best sense of the word.

What can I add, everything has been said already ... What a beautiful scene!

We read Faust at school, too. Part I - where this scene belongs to - is great.
Faust II, on the other hand is, well ... a typical sequel I would say, No comparison to the original.

Agree with the others, absolutley stunning work! As expected from you! Mephistopheles maybe won't be a big seller as a figure, but the other two can probably be pretty popular.

The painting, the modelling and composition have all come together to create a diabolically seductive scene. Wonderfully evocative!

Is the base petrified wood? It works perfectly. The tree is fabulous and the figures your usual excellent standard.

I liked Goethe's Faust but I wasn't in school when I read it. I think I had returned to school as an adult student when I read Marlowe's Faustus though.

What a wonderful, unusual topic...german heavy literature ... :oops:
Fantastic and brilliant implementation in one model.
Even if I didn't have to read the book at school, I know the story,
but your interpretation is a masterpiece!

Thank you friends! :notworthy:
Dear Graeme, Yes, I found the wood for the base in a beach near my town and... I finished it with a polyurethane varnish. :-D
