Dear all

Here are three little scenes from a famous painting. I did it the other Sunday as I was waiting for the sun to appear so as to take pictures of another MOC (finally only managed it in the last couple of days)...

Three cheers to the first who can point to the story/name of the characters/name of the painter!

Hope you like it...

It's the Aino triptych by Akseli Gallen-Kallela from Kalevala.

Well done, it's instantly recognizable (though frankly the painting is so iconic to Finns that you would be hard pressed to fail so utterly that it wouldn't be :laugh:) and well arranged. Maybe Aino should have a slightly less happy face in the middle part?

On the whole Kalevala MOCs are a cool idea, maybe I should try something like that too some time.

Gilles Gaer, could you add the original painting to your first post so we can compare?
