Defenestration by Martin (Thire5)

Hey all,

Martin (Thire5) has posted a great MOC of the [url=http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=356064]First Defenestration of Prague:

This is an incident from 1419 when an angry mob of Hussites stormed the Town Hall of Prague and killed a number of the town council members. In addition to choosing an interesting incident and capturing the action, Martin also does a great job of recreating the historic Town Hall:

Nice MOC. I would be curious to know why he made just the facade of the buildings. It could be to save on bricks or space. Nicely done. I guess town leaders shouldn't throw rocks at mobs of people - kind of like poking a bear with a stick over and over to see if it gets mad.

Despise learning and make everyone pay for your ignorance.

Why only the fasade? This moc was built for the contest on our Czech forum. This is Martin's first castle creation, maybe lack of needed pieces?

Dear god, I was planning on rendering this humorous happening into brick for a CCC entry. Just my luck when it comes to originality.

The diorama itself is great, I only wish there was some more height to the fall, as legend has it the particular window of Prague Castle tower was about seventy feet off the ground.
