UPDATE: Wednesday, April 13, 2011. Just a minor one I got the correct tan color brick door hinge unit! I am Playing with the thought to make this a full scene! I used the haze function to make it look dream like! UPDATED: Tuesday, March 22, 2011. I have finally got the horses (Ricinante) and I gave Don Quixote his own Vignette - the little taverna where he met 'Duclenea' ALDONZA!
I included a bird in the scene as a recollection of the song " LITTLE BIRD" from the Broadway show it was a very powerful song that was a very bitter one! I am working on a Windmill! One of my favorite authors is Miguel Cervantes, I remember at Brooklyn College reading his book Man of La Mancha twice! Once it was read in English and then in Spanish! I fell in love with his character of don Quixote the "lord" of La Mancha! I have seen the movie 3 x and when the musical came out I've seen it over 50 times (I was friends with the doorman)! I saw the movie version and have both the Dali Painting (copy) and a statuette!
I now have the DVD.
It was by accident I discovered SIR NADROZ's version of it here on 'mocpages'. His was the 1st (January 22, 2009) and it was followed up by: Paul Vaneesch's (November 25, 2010) and Max Pointer's (December 23, 2010) versions. They say: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!" So now let me add my addition to it!
I am still waiting for my horses and the parts I need to make a small cantina!
In my version I added Aldonza (Don Quixote's Dulcinea as well! (the barmaid from the Advent Calendar)
I now also am waiting for the parts I need to do a windmill.
I have presented two versions him with and without his shield (I am still waiting for it, for him.)

About this creation
For one year I will honor, remember and respect the victims of 9-11. Each of my creations will have a 9-11 memorial starting off the page. I'd like to give a big handshake, hug, kiss to all the people here on MOCpages that remembered by creating WORLD TRADE CENTER buildings done in LEGO you too honor the fallen of 9-11 GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!
I always had a thing for Don Quixote. Once I got a very old version written in fraktur. Anyway, I love your 'casa' and the figs, but I wouldn't post so many pics, choose a few really good (and not blurry) ones and post just them. Quality instead of quantity - my opinion.
