Barzso/LOD Enterprises Robin Hood Characters.

 As long as I was painting mythical character figures I thought I'd paint the Robin Hood figures originally by Barzso and recast by LOD. These figures represent Hollywood and Richard Greene TV series costuming. Setting Robin Hood during the reign of Richard the Lionheart only goes back a few hundred years. Research suggests the legends are more from York that Nottingham and the reign of Edward II.  It was futile to try to paint "authentic" Robin Hood costumes with these figures. As my daughter remarked : "it doesn't matter. It's Robin Hood." 

I remember from reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged  about 40 years ago, that Rand completely didn't get the Legend of Robin Hood. The legendary Hood robbed from the powerful and gave back what the powerful had stolen from the people.  

Note that I added bow strings to the stock figures.
