This diorama is called Inharmonius, and is in support of human rights in China. It was inspired by the documentary Ai Wei Wei, Never Sorry, which I think every artist should watch. Figures are all Reaper (policemen heavily converted). See WIP thread here. Meaning of the symbols: Three Children: Violation of China's one-child policy Door Number: 9413: (gau2 sei2 yat1 saang1 in Cantonese) – nine die to one live, meaning 90% chance of being dead and only 10% chance of being alive, or survived from such situations (a narrow escape). Wall Art: Literally: the Changjiang River waves behind drive the waves ahead. Meaning: Each new generation excels the last one. Graffiti: River Crab – internet slang for censorship Text – “Inharmonious” Book Cover: Falun Dafa emblem – symbol of the banned Chinese religion Falun Gong
This work is going to be a diorama in support of human rights in China. In particular, it will protest their horrendous one-child policy. The scene will feature a mother, defending her three children from Chinese police. At this point, I'm still at the planning stage. I would love any advice or ideas you all might have to share! Mother will be 50260: Xiufang, Femme Fatale Children will be the girl, baby, and the boy on the far right from 03233: Townsfolk: Children. Chinese policeman #1 will be 50036: Saburo Aritomo, Meiji Japanese Officer, with the mustache removed, and the sword hand converted to an empty hand. Chinese policeman #2 will be a compilation of two different figures, and a head from a boneyard sprue set: Body = 50006: Col. Edward Titchener, British Officer Arms = 50106: British Bobby Head = P50008B: Heads (middle one) + +
