Soldiers of Fortunate People...

Hand-painted toy soldiers fascinate me. I think it has to do with my fascination with small objects. And perhaps the idea that a person could map out their own vision of war in miniature without the gore, without the loss, without the flag draped caskets, or any of the other things that come with such skirmishes.

I guess the cultural norms have changed since the 1930s and now I doubt we will be seeing any more playsets like the Arabs of the Desert displayed below.
