The diorama is great, really nice. Did you do the sculptures yourself? How long did it take to do the whole thing? The water is also perfect, I really like the moving water look, and the splashes from the fish and bull hippo, simply perfect. I love the sacred ibis in the first photo background, how tall are they? I ask because I have a pr of southern ibis coming from Danny that should be here soon, hopefully with the next set of plants but I am always looking to get new figures or poses, though the scale is a small for me. Congratulations on the build, it looks fantastic.

Fantastic Realism, fabulous.
I love the hippos in the background papyrus and black ibises quite wonderful.
This scene, one would have fixed the time on this diorama, congratulations to the person who carried on.
The following are just as beautiful.
These are resins or terracotta, made for an Egyptian Museum?

thank you guys,for your nice commenst from all around world !

everything I'm doing is in the scale of 1/72(sometimes 1/87), also known as 20mm or 25 mm scale.
I'm downscaling various figurines (don't ask me how I'm doing it) and then I use parts like heads,feet etc. to sculpt my own figurines.
its a hell of a work and takes lots of time,but I think its really worth it!
usually it takes about 6 month to finish a dio like that,but there are some they take up to 2 years.
the ibis are conversions of preiser storcks in HO (1/87).
the water is always made of different resins....

Magic realism that is breathtaking. Thanks to your dioramom can move even for a moment into another dimension of time. Thank you. We are full of admiration for the imagination and, above all, perseverance in the implementation of these great ideas
