CCCXI - The Unhappy Prince

CCCXI - The Unhappy Prince by mpoh98, on Flickr


Hello All,

Here is my entry into the CCCXI, Court Entertainment. I had tons of fun building this scene, experimenting with different techniques.

This creation was inspired by a story/virtue from a book we have, of a sad prince who could never smile, and was always sad. The king wanted his son to be happy and smile, so he issued a proclamation throughout the kingdom. Anyone who could make the prince smile/laugh/be happy would get a small chest of gold. People all over the kingdom came over to try out their luck. Time and time again they tried, but to no avail. The prince would not smile. In desperation, the king sent messengers to the farthest reaches of the kingdom, to try and find anyone. One messenger came to a small peaceful farm, where a little happy girl lived. When she heard the proclamation, she knew what the prince needed. When she arrived at the palace, she simply said, "God loves you." Hearing this, the prince gladdened, and smiled, then laughed! Rejoicing, the king gave a feast, and gave the little girl the chest of gold. She used it to help the poor people throughout the kingdom, and those who needed it.


I don't remember the full story (I can't find the book), so this story is from what I remember, it is the general idea of what happened, the story is much more detailed. If I ever find that story again, I will make sure to edit it here (I am 100% sure I made mistakes, maybe even some parts are changed).


Enjoy!

~Matthew~

Wow! great job on this build. I always love good throne room and this one is great. The Cheese patterns on the floor are lovely as well as the green rug that leads up to the throne. The banners really fit the scene well and fit the dragon faction excellently. :) I also really like the cross mosaic behind the throne! It always amazes me how people can get such great angles with the cheese slopes.

Happy Building,

Nice throne room! The Rohirrim tapestries and the green carpet are my favorite bits.

I like the green/tan color scheme you're using here. I get tired of seeing red all the time in throne room MOCs. Beautiful cheese-slope work too!

A very nice throne room; the floor, walls, and the designs on them, very cool. Great Job!
