Here is a further Lilliputian specimen.

This is the Striped Seadog Ioho Anupsherisus ( Lilliput 1730)


Gulliver's Travels was published in the 1720s, so I chose the dates based on the conceit that he went back in later life to collect specimens.

The back shows the usual label:



Until next time

Another in my series of Lilliputians is the Fair Midshipman Onunese Anphilatus ( Lilliput 1735)

I based the names on the common names of butterflies and the Latin names derive from my warped pun-driven mind... ( I did have fun deciding on the most appropriate spelling...)


The label on the back is as follows:


until next time

Adieu

As before, there is a label on the back:


Until next time

Small Game Hunter 1

When we were staying with our friends Alison and Mike in Cheltenham I noticed that they had a small wooden plaque amongst the other pictures on one of their walls. Upon this plaque was a small clay figure of a man in Georgian clothing.

I ,being me, remarked that it lacked a label indicating the species , location and date of collection.

This led directly to a visit to the local branch of Hobbycraft and the purchase of several wooden plaques and a quantity of Fimo.

This is the first of my Lilliputians: The Dun Apprentice  Uthotadea Mostliuslus ( Lilliput 1731)


There is a further label on the back of the plaque.


I shall post further specimens anon.

Until next time

Adieu
