I think the time has come to hoist the British flag on the Legation gate, Miltiades!

They are real beauties! How did you manage to make the lanterns?

Thank you . The lanterns were made of plaster. They were pinned on the roof [and painted of course]. The Minister had a collection of rare chinese vases and other ornaments. More pics will follow.

The project is almost complete! Now I desperately need ruins. I got inspired by alcal and I made a lot of them.
Here are a few shots from my latest job
