A miniature from the Old Believer-made Suffering of the Solovetsky Fathers.



It depicts the Greek monks (on the left) comparing their books with the pre-Raskol ones of the monks at the Solovetsky Monastery.

Can you spot the racism?

LEGO will make new female characters with science jobs

In 2010, LEGO introduced a “scientist” mini-figure to its collection, and though she had no particular specialty, it was warmly received.

But LEGO’S 2011 attempt to explicitly appeal to girls was resoundingly panned. LEGO Friends seemed like a Barbie knockoff — replete with lots of pink, short skirts, hanging out at the pool and of course, some good old baking. Its critics called the toy sets condescending and stereotypical, or worse: sexist.

Earlier this year, a 7-year-old girl wrote to the company to complain that “all the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and had no jobs,” while the boys in LEGO toys “went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs.”

Kooijman’s design is the first step in correcting this problem...

In Da Vinci's work, Judas is the fifth torso and the fourth face from the left. (Peter leans past Judas to whisper to John.) The postures here are different. It is either Newton or Pasteur. Which would deny Einstein three times and which would betray him for 30 pieces of silver?

Forgive my ignorance... but what is the primary interest or enjoyment (for you)? Just the process of creating them? Recreating specific historical events? Creating theoretical/fantasy engagements?

Mostly from ancient up to 16th century.  After that, I lose interest. I have considered doing some fantasy stuff, but I've never gotten around to it. My oldest armies are Philistines, Egyptians, Assyrians and they go all the way up to the Swiss pike armies, 100 years war and Dutch Revolt.

Interesting stuff, especially the Hundred Years War and the Dutch Revolt. I'd love to see those. I've painted quite a few fantasy miniatures (mainly Warhammer and Warhammer 40K) myself, but my hands aren't steady enough for it. I can't even walk with a glass of water without spilling half of it. Tremors in the hands and all that.

That's true.  Disdain is different from simply not smiling; I've seen several of the latter.
