to whoever may see this. You should consider making a greek Gods set however instead of bringing the Gods to life as has been done with the set above. Try making the Gods look like statues

Thank you for the idea.

I have done three other sets, with one of them done with the gods in silver and gold (female and male) on top of black and pale blue metal bases.

oh thats pretty cool.
Where can I found those ?

They were part of a charity auction, so long gone now.

If you want a set like that - or the statues, I could do that custom.

Need a few months to cast up metal and get the painting done.

$360 estimate.

Maybe you could share your contact info? (I will not publish to the page)
