Aslan

C.S. Lewis' series of seven children's fantasy novels, the Chronicles of Narnia, tell allegorized versions of Bible stories and otherwise present Christian themes. In this world of talkin animals, Jesus is reimagined as Aslan (here in LEGO by ArzLan), the king and the son of the Emperor-over-the-Sea.

Happy birthday, Classic-Castle!

In addition to maintaining my little family of LEGO blogs, I'm also actively involved in Classic-Castle.com, the source for all your LEGO Castle needs. Classic-Castle just turned ten years old! In recognition of that, let's feature something appropriately themed. Here is my own sig-fig from Classic-Castle, the Precentor of the Scriptorium. In a medieval monastery, the scriptorium (literally 'place for writing') was where monks carefully copied the Bible and other manuscripts by hand. This duty in the monastery was led by the precentor, a title that is also used for the lead chanter in worship.

St Francis of Assisi

Sorry about the lack of blog posts for three weeks, life has been hectic. In the meantime I've bookmarked a lot of MOCs to put here. For instance, David Alexander Smith built St Francis of Assisi.
