Two Wise Men

Before I get back to the models one last Christmas post. This year, as every year, beloved has had the crib figures re-enacting the Christmas story over the past few weeks. Sadly, during this period, two of the Magi have suffered accidental damage.

a few more layers of filler have rebuilt the plaster
