The poor farmer couldn't pay his taxes and therefore the soldiers took his only cow. In his desperation the farmer desecrate the name of the Lord and was immediately taken prisoner. He is being taken to the nearby town to be put on trail of blasphemy. An eagle is watching the men while eating a newly caught snake.

I try to include a bird in my MOCs and this time I wanted to make something larger then before. It might be a bit to big but I'm very pleased with the result.

Thank you for watching and feel welcome to leave comments and critics  :pir-classic:

Aww man I feel sad for the poor farmer...
The soldiers act very cruel against the poor man. I like the story behind this MOC.
The MOC is really nice made, the soldiers faces look great in this scene. A good choice.
The eagle on the tree ( tree is very cool too ) is great! I'm not that fond of the snake but the eagle is awesome. :thumbup:
Again, you've done a great job. :pir-blush:

Thank you for noticing. I came up with that idea by a pure coincident.

Yeah, the snake isn't perfect but the eagles beak is open and I thought it might be a good idea to use that for something like that. But in the aftermath it might not have been the best idea.

Eagle!  :pir-wub: That is quite possibly the most accurate mini-eagle I've ever seen. Would it be possible to get a pic of just the Bald eagle alone? :pir-wub:
True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

I love the stable with the cow in it. :pir-blush:  The roof looks nice with the wooden poles beneath it, and the rat is a nice addition. :thumbup:

And yes, it's a bald eagle. I didn't have the parts to build a Golden Eagle or a White-tailed Eagle, the two eagles that can be find here in Sweden. But I think that the Bald Eagle is a really beautiful bird and I'm very happy with how it turned out. So enjoy my American friends  :pir-grin:
