last figure . . . . . next figure

The ambitious Thane of Glamis who murders his kinsman and claims the throne of Scotland for himself, is the title figure of one of Shakespeare's best known plays.

Media: Head, arms and legs of Super Sculpey, on a wire armature with a cloth body. "Salt and pepper" hair made using brown and gray mohair. His legs are wrapped with rags, and leather bindings from his soft brown leather shoes. Wearing a ragged pleated kilt of blue and red plaid as close as possible to the actual Macbeth tartan. He wears a dark blue tunic with leather and studs along the sleeve edges. Over the tunic, he wears leather armour made of many small squares of brown leather sewn onto a larger leather tunic. He has a wide leather belt with beaded rivets and golden studs, and a golden medallion with a blue stone. He has studded leather wrist guards, and wears a tattered cloak of blue and red plaid tartan, the right end of which is tucked into his belt.

Props: He holds a handmade metal sword, made by Vaughan Tyrer.

Height: 46 cm (18")
