Inspired by the beautiful painting by Gustav Klimt this has been a long time coming, but finally finished it this morning. It's twelfth scale, and completely one-of-a-kind, with hand painted silk fabric costumes, embroidered and beaded, and a base painted to compliment the costume of the man. I have chosen to have my figures stand, although I know they were kneeling before, but I liked the extra height, with the base too, which this gave as they are freestanding...unlike the original with the advantage of a background!
I have loved making this as it's been on my to do list for ages! EileenXXX

Started working on the costumes for my new figures...no prizes for guessing who this is based on now then LOL...lovely shiney things mmme!! Think I will just go with the painted surface on the man's costume as the lady has a lot of beads and stitches. There's a third design in the painting too, although not quite sure who is wearing that bit!
