He's back!

King David is back, and I bet you that me and Moses are the only ones who noticed. Just to remind you how it looked, here's a shot from a year ago, after the grand theft:


A year earlier

And today (Moses and I are deliriously happy!):

A year later



Reincarnated, just in time for Christmas.

David

I never really looked closely at him before...

..but I can tell you that I am done taking him for granted.


Welcome back!

  2. He is only reincarnated, I fear that the original has been melted, and sold as scrap. By a sheer miracle they located a cast of the old one, shipped it to Italy, and had an expert sculpt an exact replica.

    Nobody had the money to have him made, but then a foundation spend every crown they had to have this happen (3/4 of a million DKR), and subsequently closed down. What a contribution to the city that is. I hope they are proud.

  3. Oh, I see... :-/
    It's still pretty good news, though. They should be very proud.

    Thanks!
