Weird props

On December 30, 2019, my best friend, Carol, and I flew to Brussels, Belgium to celebrate the beginning of a new year.
Clearly, we had no idea what was coming.
Fortunately, ignorance is bliss. There were no premonitions of impending doom, and we had a wonderful time in Belgium.
To commemorate our trip, I bought a 1:9ish scale model of Brussels' most famous statue - the Manneken Pis.
Carol is not a model horse hobbyist, but she knows me really well. 

"How exactly are you going to work this into a performance entry?" she asked.

"I don't know," I told her truthfully. "I'll think of something."


Anne Field is holding another photo show, and one of the classes is called Weird Props
This seemed like the perfect opportunity to show off my Belgian souvenir!  I asked Ryan  to print a pedestal and pond, which I painted to match the statue.
It's not at all like the real thing, but details, shmetails.
Then I built a scene around it. This is Hawkward, successfully completing a despooking clinic's final exam.
Thank you, Anne, for allowing me to show off one of the weirder props in my collection. I had a lot of fun building this entry!
