I would like to congratulate the artist - who not only made this fine work, but also secured a commission for another - in bronze.

Wow...bronze? Is it going to be at Pennsic a coming year?

This baby appeared practically overnight at the Midrealm gates. Walking past the camp a few hours after my initial pass, by torchlight, I saw the small crowd... and then this beauty.  
It was done in resin (a card with more info was being passed around), and a very memorable piece for Pennsic 33. :)

Wow! That is an impressive sight. Who was the artisan (or artisans?) behind this masterpiece?  
And did it survive the weather?

The artisan is Tomak, of Shadowclans.

Amazing. The details were posted in the Independent, I forget which day, on how it was made and assembled. Absolutely stunning sight.

I put most of the details back on the picture of the Eastern Gates, but here's some more...Tomak is the Artist, yes it survived the weather, these resin fountains are made to last 30 to 40 years outside, and that's Northern made of bronze...our great, great, great grandchildren would still be enjoying it. As with all the different mediums this fountain is available in, you could throw coins at it until your arms fell off and you wouldn't damage it. This was a traveling show demo and not the actual item for sale, Tomak has sold one already and the bronze one is in the works. Please go to for more details. Thank you

Sitting at the food court, we saw a truck pull through with all these pieces and parts. We wondered if it was part of an entrance gate and tried to guess what some of the shapes where. This was absolutely amazing and wonderful! VIVAT to Midrealm for sharing this wonder with the Known World!

Yes, it survived the weather well! IF ONLY I had the money... and if my city allowed such stuff on our lawns. LOL  
It was truly gorgeous!

Add me to the list of Very Impressed People. I was very grateful to the Midrealm gate guards who were willing to let folks come in to take a closer look. I was convinced that it was really marble until I got right up close.

Tomak and many of the Shadow Clans are amazing Artists and Engineers. We have them to thank for many of the wonderful sights we see about Pennsic from Tomak's new Fountian, Shadow Clans Gate and wrought Iron Sigil, to the wonderful Castle we fight in each year. I hope they continue on in all their craziness and keep bringing us new delights to see each year at war.

You gotta' love Pennsic! What will they think of next? Beautiful work!

And it was even more impressive "in the flesh"! When I first saw it I had to pick my jaw up off the dirt! Wow!
