I know... not cheap... :/ But you can buy your favourite piece as a small sculpture!

Yay!:w00t: It's done, and it looks brilliant Johan - well worth all the effort you doubtless put into it! :thumbsup:
One wee question; are the pieces weighted at all, in order to give them some 'heft'? :O_o:

Thank you Mark!

That was very important for me (I mention this in the description on SW) I even added some extra material inside the knight (because it was naturally hollow being a part of a mandelbulb spine) all the pieces have been printed in at least two versions so I could feel them and make alterations to get a final piece I could be proud of.

The solidness of the pieces also reflects in the printing cost I'm afraid... ;)
