Walden; or, Life in the Woods A few months ago a friend of mine loaned me a book I had always heard of but never read. The book is the well-known "Walden; or life in the woods" written by Henry David Thoreau and published in 1854. Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days (1845–47) in a cabin he built near Walden Pond amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period. It is considered Thoreau’s masterwork. Struck by the history and inspired by the cover of the book, in the few past weeks I built Thoreau's cabin in the wood. It´s the first time that I made a woods-themed creation and I really had a lot fun building it. Hope you like it! For more detailed pictures tap here. Thanks for stopping by!
I wanted to create some different areas based on the four elements represented by the four main elves, I've mixed parts from all kinds of different sets to create these places. This one is the earth themed home for Farran the Earth Elf. I wanted it to be part cottage, part treehouse. It's mostly parts from The Elves Treetop Hideaway and the Ewok Village sets. I attached my waterfall cave alongside the treehouse I also made a fire themed volcano cave with a tall treehouse/tower neighbouring it. It's mostly made from a Lego Friends set that has a cabin and a waterfall. I kept the cabin and built the tower above it and changed the waterfall into a volcano. I've created a workshop for the Air Elf Aira in one section of the tower with a bedroom above it, an observing platform with a telescope above that and a turret room on the top. The webisodes show that Azari the fire elf is homeless and just crashes with the other elves, but I've given her a warm place to sleep inside the volcano. I kept the camp beds in the cabin for the humans to sleep in when they visit Elvendale. And here's some random pictures..
On one particular day the lovely forest maiden challenged a nearby archer to some classic archery. The proud archer took up the offer immediately as he had never lost to a man. However, this was no man. The spot they pick to the challenge was beautiful It was nicely far away from the local village, which meant the challenge wouldn't be interrupted. The archer, as the gentlemen he was, let the forest maiden go first. Thus, she calmly stood up and shot. It was a BULLS-EYE! The archer was shocked, not the pressure was on him! Will he make it to keep his honor? Or will he fall under the pressure and face the humiliation? We will never know! _________________________________________________________________________________ I admit, the photography wasn't the best. I picked the forest maiden up today and I wanted to build a little vig for her. So I did. This might belong in the Historical Forums, but this MOC was based on the CMF figure, so I put this in the Special Themes forum I also made a new logo for this build, let me know what you think of it.
