Art Work: Olster The Fool
My next art project was taken from the book cover "The Imaginative World of the Reformation". I had great fun doing it. I decided to do this art project when I was taking a graduate class at Houston Baptist University and studying the church history of England. (Remember: that is where religion began). The original piece was a wood carving. Wood carving was very popular in early art. This piece was created by Heinrich Vogtherr, The Younger, titled "The Fool". I could not find the date that Heinrich completed this piece. Heinrich however walked this earth from 1513 to 1568.
Meet Olster The Fool, who was a court jester for Queen Elizabeth. (of the Tudor family line).
I am very happy with the work I did on this piece.
