WITCHFINDER GENERAL

Here is a figure I got from Green Man and Gatekeeper, a New Age/Wicca shop in the Forest of Dean. Despite being more of an ornament with less defined detail, it painted up pretty well

  2. Seems to come straight from Rembrandt's 'Night Watch'.
    Witchfinder? He looks a little too a merry man for the job - or is it a sadistic smile?

  3. Thanks chaps. I tried to give him the wide eyed innocent look from the famous woodcut of him examining the witches and their familiars, but he turned out a bit cheerful looking...

  4. Nice figure - he even looks a bit like Vincent Price ?
