Conundrum

15x11.5. There is a story to this picture. Can you guess it? Hint - times and costumes don't match

Re: Conundrum

...we seem to have a Colosseum "situation" with a fierce tiger, a man in denim jeans and a woman in casual shorts or dress. I can't quite make out the clothing on the left side figure...boots and a cowboy hat, I think.

Time traveling tourists?

The whole thing is really well done - I'm loving your stone Colosseum!

Re: Conundrum

Thanks Terri! Here is the story: a group of actors at the Colloseum, enacting a scene where the Christians were fed to lions because of their belief. This scene is where the tiger(tamed as the lions are too vicious) came loose and runs to his trainer for a romp. The Roman actor in the background wants to help before another tamed vulture gets his act in too off stage
To get a building in as huge as the Colloseum and the actors was a bit daunting so I decided to do another scene of where the Christians are kept in the dungeons beforehand.

Re: Conundrum

I've been puzzling over your conundrum, which I so enjoy with the Colosseum and figures! The story is great!

Your dungeon and figures are chilling! The dungeon and tunnel ... wow!
It must have been difficult to create that depth along with maintaining perspective AND keeping it detailed!

Re: Conundrum

Christel, wow, what a great and fresh story! Fascinating! Great job on the details and costumes - I especially like the second one as I can see the costumes better

what size is the 2nd one?
