Ahhhh, and the other standard on the right side of the pic has this crown for children on top of it, me thinks:

That was an amazing exhibition.  Ishould imagine that you needed the two days it was on just to get round all the displays!

There are some amazing customs, especially in the buildings and I never expected to see System-X and Steck used together.

Well spotted, now I look closer I see the child is still wearing their crown. :o

I think this is meant to be an imagifer, a type of standard that has an image of the emperor. Either that or they're barbarian auxiliaries and they found some prince whose head wasn't attached strongly enough so they put it on a pole for safe keeping.

Thank you so much for taking us through the truly magnificent dioramas of this exhibition  :love: :love: :love:

I will have to revisit this thread to go through the amazing details of the scenes and amazing buildings  :lens:

I love details such as the roofer applying a gold leaf treatment to the roof which reminds me of Innsbruck's Goldenes Dachl or "Golden Roof"  :cloud9:
