Barn og skultpurer

En profesjonell miniatyrsculptør forklarer hvorfor han har laget en litt spesiell miniatyrfigur:

As anyone with two or more children can testify, you can’t do something for one and not the other. So it is that having made Slug-eat-your-face for my son Theo, I am now obliged to make something for my daughter Nora.

These creations are part of a game my children play while riding in the car. Theo has an imaginary kingdom, ‘Theoland’ and has encouraged Nora to develop ‘Noraland’ as a foil for his schemes of conflict.

[…]And so I have had to construct Nora’s response to Theo’s provocation from a number of conversations. A synopsis would go something like this. The speakers are sometimes simultaneous.

T. In Theoland I have giant moles…
N. Well, Noraland has Pink Ponies.
T. …with wings …
N. Well mine are pink UNICORN ponies
T. …and gills …
N. …and THEY have wings too and …
T. … so you can’t get away from them…
N. …they have fairy princesses, MAGICAL fairy princesses…
T. …no matter where you go.
N. …to ride them.
T. And anyway Nora, there’s no such thing as magic.
N. And they’re BALLERINA fairy princesses.
T. Well my moles have bat wings and are really scary.
N. Well … hum… my ponies have RAINBOW LASERS.

So there you have it. ‘Ballerina Fairy Princess on Flying Pink Pony Unicorn with Rainbow Laser’. The standard unit of the Noraland defense force.

Slightly sær figur:)
