Death who mocks us all...
The Grim Reaper approaches...
Terrible, inevitable, unpredictable, the reaper who mocks us all, death personified with his skeletal features and his scythe.
“Shush. I’m coming...”

The project really started after a kind of flash in which I imagined the juxtaposition of a Napoleonic ceremonial uniform with a fool’s motley. The idea of the cowled head with the finger held up in front of its mouth came soon afterwards. The reaper bids the horrified onlooker to keep quiet, the fool’s aspect gives a comedic twist to a serious subject matter.
All the elements were there and after a few days reflection, Bertrand Benoit’s illustration ensued. It won’t have escaped your notice that the face resembles the logo of Figone, the miniatures company I run.
In all the project took around 200 hours spread over two months to complete.

    I really enjoy this model Jerems. I think it’s fantastic. These pictures look better than the ones that were online for Crystal Brush too.

    You are amazing! I hope we can meet up again when I come to France next spring.
