Paleolithic hunter - January 2013

David Armitage, Batavia, New York

Hunting reindeer and other large mammals, fashioning tools from stones and bones, and littering the landscape with small carvings, Magdalénian hunter-gatherers roamed Western Europe from 15,000-7,000 B.C. David recalled these denizens of the Upper Paleolithic period with Nemrod’s 54mm figure (mammoth skull included). He used twine for grass, and gravel and spices for the groundwork. The background is a calendar picture.

    An unusual subject with a very realistic groundwork. Nice way you integrate the ground work with the calendar background. Good figure painting skills too. Taken together, a very nice job indeed!

    Quite nicely done!  I especially like the backdrop that goes along with the model.

    Very nice, great skills in diorama you have! looks like it could have been at the end of an ice age, and he is pondering on where`s the beef.
