Assyrian Scene 6

The Ikea mat frame is meant to display three photos. It was adapted to create four pillars. The winged bull panels were glued to the mat frame. I started to paint in some background colours for the scene.

Assyrian Scene 5

This diorama is starting to take shape. I sourced for images of winged bulls and printed them out to suitable size. One of this image was flipped over to create a mirror image. These images were carbon traced onto cardboard panels. These panels will form the "wings" for the Assyrian scene.

Long box diorama 4 Assyrian scene

The Ikea frame comes with a pre-cut cardboard. As this was meant for displaying three photos, I adapted the frame to represent four pillars. The photo shows the proposed lyaout. The edges can be masked by other devices.

Long box diorama 3

An idea is taking shape for this piece. It will be a court scene with pillars overlooking the background scenery.  I plan to create an Assyrian banquet and orgy scene.

A flared interior structure was made up and the pillars were cut out based on Assyrian examples.
