The Iconograph by Mark Ayling

Postby The Mad Collector » Sun Feb 10, 2013 9:46 pm

I cannot find any posts about this item of Discworld modelling and as I finally unpacked it from it's box after 10 years it's time what is probably Mark Aylings finest work was seen here. Most of the pieces are separate items and you have to assemble the iconograph as you would a dolls house, putting the furniture, pots, easel, slippers etc where you want them

That is amazing. I had no idea these existed or who Mark Ayling is!

He has got a door, maybe he steps out and uses the public facilities ;)

Somewhere I have some more of Marks work, it's just a case of which box do I sort out first :oops:

My art and photographic books do have a lot of urns and flowers in them. ;)
