What a fantastic diorama! I love everything about it... from the funerary boat to the farmer using the shadoof to water his little field...this is amazing, gorgeous work!

You have captured the scene perfectly - it feels like Ancient Egypt!

Hussein, superb work. How did you make the date palms? The crocodile gives me chills. This glimpse of an ancient Egyptian community and your modeling ability is splendid.

Simply glorious! I love the mixture of ground work, plants, masterful water texturing, and color. The figures work, too.
