I find the gold brocade of Louis’ uniform quite pleasing, only upstaged by the massive medal that he wears about his neck.
This series of mosaics was inspired by Napoleonic general portraits. I loved the sheer pageantry of the uniforms contrasting with the rather blank faces. This came through nicely in brick.
These pieces are solidly built and can be hung on a nail. The elements have not been glued, so care should be taken as they can come apart.
