The Birthmark: The Lab
I regret to admit that I haven't been the most active of fellows over the last few months. That should change shortly, as I will be posting a bunch of small MOCs to crescendo into a large scale (40x32) dio that I have finally photographed. This MOC is based on Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story "The Birthmark."
About this creation

"The Birthmark" follows the story of Aylmer, a scientist, who works in a his lab with his "igor" Aminadab. Aylmer marries Georgina, a beautiful woman with but one blemish: a small mark on her left cheek shaped somewhat like a hand. Here stands Aylmer and his wife.


Here is Aminadab. When Aylmer cannot stand the sight of Georgina's birthmark any longer, he decides to attempt its removal. Here, his assistant removes the boiling potion from the furnace.


Mr. Mouse is not mentioned in the story, but couldn't be excluded from the lab.


The vig un-figged.


Here are some random beakers.


Aylmer & Georgina. Here is the "electrical machine ... ready for immediate use."


And Finally, here is Aminadab.

Unfortunately, although he held many puritan views, Hawthorne rejected the upmost pillar of puritanism (and Christianity for that matter): the fact that Christ has died for our sins so that we might live; that the blemish on our cheek might be removed.

Sol Deo gloria!

Most excellent! I had no idea those types of "fleshie" figs were on the market; I really should pick some of them up! I especially like the fabulous message you put at the end. Great job on being brave enough to tell people about the the Truth :)

Very cool! That electrical machine thing is neat. I am SO jealous of that beaker from the mad scientist fig, I need to get one of those. I can't wait to see that dio you're talking about!

Quoting Christopher Baldacci Did you mean 'Soli Deo Gloria'?
Yup. I don't know were "omnis" came from. Thats what rhetoric does to you sometimes.

Awesome! Love the figs. Just letting you know, "Solo Dei omnis gloria" means "for only gods by all (plural) the glory (singular)". I'm not quite sure what you meant. Clarification? Did you mean 'Soli Deo Gloria'? Which is 'Gloria' (nominative singluar) and 'soli deo' (dative singular) meaning "Glory to God alone." Anyway, I will get off my Latin and back to the MOC. Great details! I need to read that story!
