Indeed, if the artist can be trusted, that could be Dugal. He is still missing, and this throws an even odder twist in the search for him. We thought he was lost in the desert, but if there is a chance he is out and about in the cities without contacting GEAR trading posts, we worry that he has either lost his memory or is executing a mission so secret that he could not tell his closest friends and relatives.

We will see. Thank you for sending us a copy of this painting.

I realized that  did not comment on the MOC itself, doh.

I really like the fountain, and as always you come up with some very creative ideas to at to the rich Kaliphlin lore. I like the pallet you chose for this, it reminds me of a large open air market in a Marrakesh.

Thanks everyone for the comments! I really wanted to add some more backdrop to the scene but I knew if I didn't limit myself then this would have been added to my many shelves of incomplete MOCs. So before I started putting this together I chose the base to put it on. Then came the mask display which i tried several different ways to attach the rope. I salvaged the fountain from my castle which is in redesign stage. I thought several times about adding a small building or something but decided that I wanted the scene to be able to fit right in to a city of any of the guilds.

I am almost sure it must be a secret mission as he looks quite pleased and doesn't seem confused as he should if he lost his memory.... With deGothia's mission to Mitgardia, it makes me wonder if Dugal is not up to something similar...

Good idea for a shop. I like the fountain, and the way the rope attached to the shelf is genius.

Lovely work and a very original idea Mikel!  :thumbup: I love the mask rack, and the fountain is well done too. I especially like the way the curve of the fountain follows the curves in the front corners of the base.  :classic:
