Note that a significant number, if not the majority of ancient and classical statues and reliefs were actually vividly painted. What we see today is what was left after thousands of years of weather removed the paint. Humans have been painting stone since at least the Neolithic. This one, for example dates to roughly 20,000 years ago.

They even used a primitive "airbrush" technique, where the artist would blow pigment through a bone tube at a surface that had been covered with oil or animal fat.

The figures often get shoved to her station because he does a lot of the setup for their classes in his and needs the room.

 

Bob is the one that likes to do terrain pieces.  I'm 99% sure he built the shrine and Julie added spiders.

The real question is.  Is it going to end up being like Dragons dont share?  Where everything is a bundle only come retail.  If they dont break it up at retail thats gonna kill it for me.

 

I suspect this is going to be a boxed set, about $30 in retail because of all the pieces.  It's not going to be cost efficient to break it up for retail if it is all on one mold. 

 

The character figures from DDS2 are available separately in metal.

Who.. uh.. who sculpted this? Because they're a mad, evil genius, whoever they are.

(for why.. don't go looking up Oglaf and the Sheela na Gig strip...)

 

The update attributed it to Bob Ridolfi

Now I kind of need that expansion. 

 

Granite comes in pink, right? >.>

Actually it does, I grew up around it. And as for your allusion to a sheela na gig: as a wise person on the forums here once said, "SNRK."

 

Clearly the sheela na gig isn't working. Too many evil spiders :zombie:

... well. There are some .. interesting spider patterns out there. Maybe they're guard-spiders. <.<

Or perhaps it is a shrine to Arachne/Lolth/etc and is working just fine, thanks. "The Mother of All Spiders" could be a cool death goddess archetype.

It's a good terrain piece.  IMO I don't think you'll have trouble selling it afterward if you get it.  There seem to be people who like the altar, but don't want the spiders or bodies.
