Hänsel & Gretel
In the beginning of this year, Lena was invited for a contest to design a coin-model for the German Federal Ministry of Finance.
The topic was Brother Grimm's fairytale Hänsel und Gretel. After the anniversary of Grimm's collection in 2012, the Ministry of Finance is now releasing six motives of popular Grimm stories, every year one.
After Lenas graphic projects, we did a lot of craftsmen work in dental gips, proposing two projects, each with a motive and a currency side with the german eagle.
The hight range of the carved surface of the models is within 1 mm, so we spent many long winter evenings carving obsessively next to the heater.
One of our proposed models passed the third step of selection, but anyway there was chosen another project for realisation as official coin.
Nevertheless it was great to work on this generous contest and we are very familiar with Hänsel and Gretel now.
