Cain and Abel

"Abel and Cain


Race of Abel! eat, sleep, drink.
God smiles on those that he prefers.
Race of Cain!in swamps that stink,
Crawl, and die the death of curs.
Race of Abel! your crops sprout,
And your flocks are safe and sound.
Race of Cain! your guts howl out
In hunger, like an ancient hound.
Race of Abel! warm your guts
At the patriarchal fire.
Race of Cain! in caves and huts
Shiver like jackals in the mire.
Race of Abel! Pullulate :
Your gold too procreates its kind.
Race of Cain! Hearts hot with hate,
Leave all such appetites behind.
Race of Abel! grow and graze,
Like woodlice that on timbers prey.
Race of Cain! along rough ways
Lead forth your family at bay.


Ah! Race of Abel! your fat carrion
Will well manure the soil it presses.
Race of Cain! One task to carry on
Remains for you, a task that presses.
Race of Abel! Shame is nigh.
The coulter's beaten by the sword.
Race of Cain, climb up the sky,
And to the earth hurl down the Lord."

— Roy Campbell, Poems of Baudelaire (New York: Pantheon Books, 1952)



Cain and Abel, a duel which really has something into it from the depth of my heart these days. It shows the fight against my own inner bad guy - reasons won't be told because this goes way to deep and personal

I have used 2 Red Box Games Miniatures, Bolverk the Bold and Conrad the Crazed for this epic duel. A pleasure to work with again and again - thanks to the Sculptor Tre' for making such cool models and help my ideas and visions get manifested. Who is who should be up to your own imagination.Sorry for the picture being so big in its seize - please be patient.

If you are intrested in some Work in Progress shots and thoughts of mine about this feel invited to my blog. For information about the Duel check out "Kong's WIP Thoughts Oct01 ~ 02"...

This one is a gift for a friend from Italy - because in Paint we trust - i have planned to visit and finally meet him this year, but i wasn't able - so this is for you my friend MXP, you'll get it when we meet because shipping is not an option. I am so much looking forward and i hope the gods may be with us in the future. So far it stays in my cabinet

Hope you like it!
Keep on happy painting!

Great feeling of interaction in this duel, and the base work is absolutely outstanding (again!) I really like the way the elements on the base are laid out and the colour scheme is all nicely tied together. Fantastic stuff, when can we expect to see that great big demon in your display cabinet painted up??? dfb

Jarhead is a genius! The way you make these amazing displays is beautiful. this is a skill i want very badly. you never fail to inspire me!
#305245 Rating: 10 12 Oct 2009 are consistently one of the best and most interesting contributors here. Always something new. Always interesting. Always a personal vision of some kind. Always an insight into the artist. Very cool stuff indeed. The base construct is good...the colors and textures make it great. I am quite sure MXP will display this with great pride, both for the art and the friendship.
