Artistic Homework

Brian’s class has been studying Renaissance Art and each student had to pick one piece to do a project on. Brian picked “The Ambassadors” by Hans Holbein the Younger. It’s a fascinating piece, with a lot of great detail. Wiki has an interesting page about it:
Brian has had to study the painting and write up a paper on various aspects. This weekend, he had to re-create the painting itself.

I think his version turned out quite well. It was something of a scavenger hunt, trying to find objects to stand in for all the various bits and bobs in the original!
Our first version… a little less accurate…
What a fun way to study art! 

Brian photoshopped the elongated skull into his version:

I just keep coming back to see the versions of this artwork! How totally fun! Is your school year done yet?

Nice job, Brian. You picked the best model to help.
