Three Wise Men
One of Will's class art projects was to create a nativity scene out of modeling clay. Will was assigned the Three Wise Men. These are not painted, they are just done with pieces of different colored clay. I am not sure which one is Caspar, which one is Melchior and which is Balthasar, but the magus on the left is carrying myrrh, the one in the middle is carrying gold and the one one on the right is supposed to be carrying frankincense, except it was lost in transit. I love all the detail of different hat styles, the little feet, etc.
