PostSubject: Two things I want to find. Banner and serpent stand   Fri 8 Feb - 4:20

I'd love to display my jade cult of set neclace against the same patterned cloth as the movie. Anyone have a clean picture of the design that I could use to print out a good replica? I know I can find some 8.5x11 cloth to print on, or I could silk screen it. However i don't have a clean image to work with, and I have all the artistic tallent of a group of colorblind hedgehogs... in a bag.



The other thing I have pondered is a suitable stand for my Eye of the serpent. I'd like one as exact as possible, but even if I have to kit bash something after market, I might be persuaded.



Any ideas along these lines would be most helpfull.

Buy an anaconda and feed it with 70 or 80 rabbits each morning. Wink

One thing that maybe could help you is that all the designs including the artifacts in the Temple of Serpent have an "art-nouveau" style. You will find some comparisons in the pages of the "historical art and symbolism" thread.

I find the stand of the jewel like some kind of metallic-maybe iron-, "art nouveau" object" pretty close to these two pictures:

These are real historical pieces from museums or private collectors







In Salamanca (Spain) there is an Art-Nouveau museum, very interesting. You will find lots of similarities with Ron Cobb and William Stout style.

You can watch some of the objects here:

Of course, man, authentic "art nouveau" objects would be really expensive and hard to find, but if you are open to spend some money and make a search, maybe you could find some nice serpent motifs like these two made in iron.

And maybe you can find some cheap reproduction or something, I don't know. You can even order it to be built in some jewels shop, or in some art shop.

Also, take a look in some antiques shop, and maybe you can find some iron serpents. In Spain these shops are very common in some cities, I don't know in your country.

Maybe take a pottery class or do it on your own on your at home and sculpt some things.

I found that for about $60, but if mouth is closed. Confused I was thinking that I could try my hand at casting, but I'm worried about my ability there.
I figured if I could just find one decently shaped snake, I could cast the others.

Since I was only looking for the central gem stand, I thought I could find something close, but for the pattern, i wish I was even 1/100 the artist I'm not. Its pretty basic, but I suck at stick figures so.....

Well, I can't afford to bid war on it, so here you go:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320216085698&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=011
I totally want it, but I'm too poor and don't really need a pocket watch stand.

approximately US $19.60 and same for shipping. 1 bid on it, so it could end up being $100.
