Les misérables advent calendar

Postby Trompe-la-Mort » Sun Dec 30, 2012 1:01 pm

A few days too late, but so what...

I've been making my own advent calendars for about ten years now and this one was quite a bit of work six years ago. Which is why I recycle it every year. It follows the life of Jean Valjean in 24 stations (leaving out his death, because who wants to open a grave on Dec 24th?) and since the order should be obvious, the houses are not numbered. I honestly tried to do it in scale, but failed miserably. I upload this now, because recently the sixth person has asked to see pictures... So here goes:

An overview:

Faverolles (Nr. 1 and 2):

Toulon (3 and 13):

Overview of Paris (16-24):

Petit-Picpus (17). Apart from the bell tower, all buildings can be opened. This is simply because in the year I made it, I thought that the first day of Chanukkah was the 17th (it was actually the 16th, but I noticed too late...)

Gillenormand's house (23):

Façade of Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis (24 of course):

And now that Christmas is over it goes back into the cupboard for next year... :wink:

That is possibly the best Advent calendar I've seen. *applauds* I understand why you would want to keep reusing it... :shock: :mrgreen:

And seeing the Orion probably made my day. :mrgreen:
