Such amazing artistry to create that.
Lisl: It looks like painted alabaster to me. I agree, Michael
I hate to see those scratches on the right...
Lisl: Much of it defaced centuries ago, Larry. It is quite soft

The close-up works for me, Lisl.
Lisl: I am pleased to her it, Ray - still struggling with my new P900, but it does seem OK for indoor shots. I am not using it often
This is a lovely image, Lisl
Lisl: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth
I love the detail of this, Lisl, and the colors are exquisite.
Lisl: Thank you very much, Ginnie

Impressionnant, on dirait une vraie personne.
Lisl: You are quite right, Martine

The age of this is clearly visible. The colours and the finish remind me very much of the old-style galloping horses at a fairground, for example.
Lisl: Ah yes
A fine item Chris.
Lisl: Thank you, Alan
Sorry Lisl!! I am not with it this morning!
Lisl: Whoops, sorry!

I have seen many an important person, thus enshrined in Portugal. I have always wondered whether they start off by using the actual body as some kind of template. Most of them very well done, but whether the statue resembles the actual person, no one will probably know today.
Lisl: I know the early wooden sculptures of monarchs in Westminster Abbey Museum were taken from life

I wonder what the A stands for, my guess is Anthony.
Lisl: Where is the A, please, Chad?
It is painted well with shadows on the face and all.
Lisl: I imagine this is the original colour, too, Mary - quite amazing if so

A lovely picture Lisl, the colours look so fresh.
Lisl: Thank you. Do you remember him, Anne?
A well taken opportunity Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you, Brian. I love to visit Cathedrals

Paix à  son âme, un gisant que ressemble fort à  ceux de la basilique saint Denis.
Lisl: That is interesting. I live in the Diocese of Bath & Wells, and often visit Wells Cathedral which is a stunning place

This looks so alive.... all the details. This is wonderful.
Lisl: It has survived so many years, and should for years to come, Astrid

A fine figure.
Lisl: I like the remaining colour, Cherie
