    More clay or a smaller statue, but this wouldn’t be so impressive!

    So would Calvin be War, Famine, Pestilence or Death?

    Given the back-and-forth with Susie Derkins, I’m guessing War.

    Centaurs are cool. Calvin centaur-no words can describe it.

    Actually, shouldn’t it be larger than life-sized to be impressive?

    Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠!*

    His hair will be hard to do in clay.

    I can see it now…….. The five horsemen of the apocalypse………War, Famine, Pestilence, Death, and Big Snowballs Raining Down On Innocent People Walking Under Trees.

    Hmm, will it occur to him that he might get more clay if he digs up the back yard?

    Probably Dad sometimes wishes Calvin were a statue.

    @rayannina: No, no, no; he’s the Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse. Chaos.

    LeslieAnne, Are you perpetually 25 as Calvin is perpetually 6? I’ll bet you could get help with your snowpants quicker than Calvin got help with his snowpants, although tomorrow Calvin probably will get assistance sooner than he did today, much to his chagrin.

    It’s a good thing professional sculptors don’t shop at Toys-R-US, the cost to city budgets for those ‘works of art’ that decorate every other street corner would be even more exorbitant! ^_^

    Calvin’s finished article will probably have the horse rearing up on it’s hind legs with Dad cowering on the ground while looking up in fear below the front legs.

    @Calvin you’ll need just a “little” bit more clay…

    I made my school leaving examination in “music” and I had “The book with seven Seals” composed by Franz Schmidt.

    Just get a huge lump of clay and remove everything that doesn’t look like a Horseman of the Apocalypse.

    Curmudgeon says: “modelling” should be “modeling.”

    Interesting that Hobbes’ first thought, picturing Calvin on a horse, is of the apocalypse!

    Calvin, you will also need a large purchase of bronze for your final casting, or marble. Best to get dad’s credit card when he’s taking a nap.

    Stupendous, followed by War, then Famine (to bed without dinner).

    puddleglum2 No I am not perpetually 25… I will be 26 in 7 months! I am not afraid of my age, and it comes from a line of women who weren’t afraid of their age. My mother is very proud to say she is 47!

    Calvin… to have enough clay to match the size of your imagination, it would take over the entire house!!!

    i don’t think there will ever be enough clay, because he’s going to continue to add to his imagination.

    A Calvin World in clay

    jeffsxq , hobbes first thought is really interesting hmmm

    See Tolkien’s Leaf by Niggle.

    When I was with the Vancouver Maritime Museum, I was a modeller. In Texas, I was a modeler. Now that effective tremor has set in, I am neither. :-(

    *jeffsxq: True curmudgeons scoff at Webster’s. Not being a true curmudgeon, however, I will have to accept your correction.

    With Calvin’s self confidence and ego, any statue he would create of himself would equal or even exceed anything Moammar Gadhafi has had created to honor himself.

    If Calvin is to be the Horseman of Chaos, suggest the horse be painted a nice, bright orange paisley….

    And then when your mom walks in Calvin, you can make up that you have to do this horse statue for a school assignment.

    We never limited ourselves to one such creation–which is why our clay didn’t seem to stay in any one shape very long.

    Hobbes may be Calvin’s best friend but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’d be willing to share statue space with him!

    That’s more like 500 lawyers under the sea. A good start, but there’s a lot more to go.
