I arrived late to this topic! Congratulations, the Anna gaur is an absolutly magnificent figure!!! Ah, I'm glad to know there's a Robert and a Harriet in your home! No Roger? Sad Wink

thank you!

Robert and Harriett were named before i came to STS, and most of the sheep do not even have names.
i usually wait for someone to tell me what their name is, but when you ask about "Roger" one popped into my mind. would you be offended if Roger were a lamb (a very nice lamb) or will you insist he be a ram?

Ah, thanks! I do not mind having not horns! Very Happy :reindeer: Where is Roger??? Suspect

PostSubject: ROGER THE LAMB   Thu Sep 01, 2011 7:07 am

When Rogbert asked if i had a sheep named Roger, this little guy leaped forward to be named Roger:

He is the Hagen Renaker Designer's Workshop Lamb "Son John" with sticker. He's glossy, from the Monrovia period, 1950s.
Roger is secured down to the mantle with earthquake wax, so here is a view of Son John's other side, of my matte Monrovia Son John.


Here is Roger with his mum Gwyneth, who is the HR DW "Lady Jane":


And here they are, surrounded by a pair of Rosenthal lambs, a pair of Lladro lambs, and the Beswick special issue Swaledales:

i don't know who did the little white lamb scratching her ear. The little ones on the left are Beswicks. These are all new and waiting to find someplace to live around here. The little black and white lamb behind the big Beswick is a Japan copy of John.

So Roger, you might be a lamb, but you're very high quality!

Ohhhh, Roger is SO lucky to have such a beauty named after him Shocked cheers
Your collection keeps astonishing me. And all the knowledge you have about the various brands !
I wished I could find you a Royal Copenhagen, but they are SO darned expensive Neutral

That is a fantastic idea, - earthquake wax Very Happy
I sometimes use old fashioned blu-tack , not against earthquakes, but against Siamese cats cat Laughing

Yes it is! My dad bought me two, the other one looks a bit like a Baobab tree. Usually they're really expensive aren't they, but he only paid a couple of pounds for them. cheers That's Anna's Bongo under the tree. Very Happy

WOW! Your dad did a real bargain there Very Happy

That tree is fabulous cheers
I always wanted some bonzai, but as you say they are usually awfully expensive. And my feeble attempts to make them myself have not succeeded.

Yes, it looks so great with the wonderful Bongo under a tree that fits the size , - beauuuutyful I love you I love you drunken

On one day, i had 2 surprise packages coming in, so two people made my day!
In one was Ana's fantastic gaur bull, which has a nice place between all other wild bovines in one of my vitrines right now.
Here are some pics:

Ah, Willy! Congratulations for your addition, I already knew it from you but it is always much nicer to se the pictures of such an emblematic figure! More than the power of a gaur, we see in this sculpture, the power of Ana's talent! Isn't it nice to live in the same era as Ana? Very Happy
But Willy, it was not necessary to show this monument with the Lineol yak, bison and even the Britains gaur! Too much emotions for a fragile crocodile! I love you bom Crying or Very sad Sleep

Cool Wink Thank you all very much guys! cheers
And Ana in the first place of course for this fantastic model! queen
Of course i had to compare it with the only other gaur i have, and with some other quality bovines from Lineol... farao
Because these are modern times, with modern materials and much more knowledge about the natural world, modern models can be better the the fabulous Lineols, but a great artist like Ana is very much needed in this field to of course! Very Happy
And of course i had to have it, as i have all of her models, besides some of her own studies, the specials for Phil and Christophe, but for that i have my own specials from her. Cool Wink

Just to remember you all of these:


Mandrill


Okapi male


Okapi female


Tarpan re-paint from the Schleich Przewalskihorse


King Cheetah re-paint from the older Schleich Cheetah


Sechuan Takin


Lowland Bongo


Malayan Tapircalf
