Zouave Diorama
« on: April 23, 2013, 12:38:10 PM »
Hi guys
My lovely Perry friends were sent some photo's of this beautiful diorama...
inspired by a Don Troiani painting...
and made by Petri Kovanen from Helsinki

I thought I would share it with you

All the best Aly

This is a beautiful work of art. I wonder whether the piece of wood is of a certain origin that is related to the depicted scene.

WOW! This diorama is really beautiful. I like the painting style and flags are one of the best I have seen so far! :-*

By the way…it was really a pleasure to meet and talk to you at the Salute. Hope to see you in Hamburg next year ;)

Best regards
Frank

That is gorgeous, hope we get to see more of Petri Kovanen's work. Don't know what I like about it most, everything is brilliant. Love the mounted officers, but that drummer's face and hair is peerless.

Hi Arkoudaki
I think there are a few more pic's..
I will see what I can do

"Watch out Aly, General Lee is a dangerous Dutch stalker!  lol"


I had best not tell him I am 'THE' Aly Morrison  ;)

Blue...
It is true , the more you look at something the more 'squeaks' you see but I don't think they distract to much from the beauty of this model plus the quality of painting and use of colour is superb ... I hope he does more.

All the best. Aly
