It looks simple doesn't it. I think I could probably have a go at one as well. The detail is the thing I'd have a problem with. It's difficult to see from the pictures, but the tail is an inch or two long and is partially carved in to the bookshelf. Its only ever 1 or 2 mm wide and tapers to nothing. Very delicate carving! The whiskers either side of the face are also really finely carved. Apparently genuine Mouseman pieces only have the rear legs carved and must have the long whiskers reaching back to the ears.

They are nice :D great pics. If I had the money this is something i could probably collect - but I'm not rich enough :lol: I'm not sure the top right one is an original mouseman though :think: seems to have front legs and no whiskers - the carving also just doesn't seem to be as fine.

I can't afford one either so I'm allowed to be greedy and want the lot. ;)
