Oswald's Death
My second MOC in my "famous pictures and paintings" series. In 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated while riding in a motorcade. The assassin, known as Lee Harvey Oswald was being transferred to a country jail when he was shot and killed by Jack Ruby. This famous picture photographed by Robert H. Jackson depicts the exact moment of the killing. The police, handcuffed to Oswald is in bewilderment while Ruby's hunched figure and clenched fist shows his determination. Oswald's face clearly portrays his agony.
About this creation
Here is the original photo.


As a note, I had forgotten that P. Voranc made a similar MOC: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/302911

Stay tuned for Number 3!

Very nice photo and great concept for a series. I think Oswald should be a little more in profile.

For me it's the Sheriff's reaction that is instantly recvognisible. Good work.

Quoting George Staples I think it looks more like a western picture, with the cowboy hats.
Howdy sheriff! ;) -LB Senior

Very interesting! I'm a big fan of political Lego creations. When I lived in Dallas my family took me to the Grassy Knoll and the schoolbook depository where Oswald apparantly was. Thanks for the cool build!

Quoting Ian Spacek The head you used for Oswald is perfect! Heh, that picture was in my history text this year. Quite a photograph to say the least! Clever idea to recreate it in Lego!
Glad you recognized the photo. I first saw it in my history book as well! I appreciate the comment.
Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist At first I thought you were killing Ru's siggy, oh well. :P Great work!
Sorry to disappoint you. ;-) -LB Senior

Very good recreation of this scene. I like your choice of minifigs and the posing of them. It has a kind of comedy feel to it ;-)
