The Road to Arnhem

FIGZ group build 2016

The road to Arnhem was the name of the 2016 FIGZ group build. The idea was that each participating member of the bennos figures forum would make a small diorama of something happening on the road to Arnhem (Arnhem is where FIGZ takes place), and in doing so creating a road through time.

So this is my addition to that road. The scene represents a lion that has broken out of the Arnhem zoo, this story is based on a real story from the actual zoo, only difference is that in real life it was a tiger.

Here are some pictures of the mini diorama:
