Miracles of Agostino Novello

Postby Bruce N H » Thu Sep 10, 2009 2:40 pm

Hey all,

Inspired by this altarpiece painted by Simone Martini in 1324 depicting miracles attributed to the saint Agostino Novello:

Italian builder mautara has created a series of MOCs:

illustrating, respectively, the bottom left, upper left and upper right panels from the altarpiece. He is currently working on a LEGO version of the fourth miracle in the lower right panel.

I think that they look wonderful. It definitely has a strong Italian feel to it.

That is really quite good. I need to do some research about the original now. I've never seen it before.

Cool floating cloud- I didn't know there was a Western equivalent of Son Goku. :tasty:

It's wonderful like the others but the indoor details are even better: the loom (telaio) above all.
The palace is also beatiful and the combination of arches in the windows are creative.

Hey Mautara,

I'm glad you did the fourth panel. It's a great MOC. As others have said, that loom is particularly inspired. I also really like the group playing instruments. So, what's next? Do you have another artwork in mind for your next MOC?

I'm very happy you all like my last creation as the others, and i'm also happy you like the loom. I made several tries before i got this last one. On the contrary i made the reel (i hope the word is correct) in just one evening :)

My next project will be St Mauro who walked on water to save st. Placido, a fresco by Sodoma in the abbey of Monteoliveto. Sorry, i can't find any picture of it on the web so you all have to wait too see both the artwork and my MOC :wink:

Hi everybody,
my latest creation is a little esagonal church that completes the diorama of miracles 1, 2 and 4. even if there's no more agostino novello the scale and the style are the same of previous MOCs.

brickshelf has no upload so i opened an account on flickr where you can find both the church and the diorama

i hope you all enjoy it
