Une info en avant première :
Nous avons lancé une commande pour la réalisation de statuettes de Jacobus (prototype ci contre).
Ces statuettes seront en résine (comme l’était celle de Jean le Bûcheron).
Normalement, elles seront dispos en Janvier 2015 !
Plus de détails dans quelques semaines...
Our actual Giant Jean le Bûcheron _ Johnny the woodcutter (as he was named when he travelled to India in 1989) _ is aging...
A bit of history first : The first figure Johnny I was created in 1914, but its torso was taken by german soldiers during WW2 and lost in 1945. The actual figure was built in 1948.
Though it has been restored a few times since, time does its work and time has come for for Johnny II to retire.
We contacted a few artists in France, Belgium and Spain to get quotations for a new giant: Johnny III.
We want a new giant, not a clone of the actual, but nevertheless, Johnny III will probably be quite alike Johnny II.
We wish to keep its main caracteristics : carried on the shoulders, by two men one behind the other, according to the flemish ways. It will still hold an axe, have a moustache, and a winged helmet....
The project should be over by the end of 2014 !
If you like our giant, let us know and donate for the creation of Johnny the Woodcutter III
