„Sur les tréteaux l’arlequin blême
Salue d’abord les spectateurs
Des sorciers venus de Bohême
Quelques fées et les enchanteurs.“

Guillaume Apollinaire – Alcools

The Harlequin and the rats are Rackham Miniatures. Rackham made some of the nicest Miniatures which ever existed in the 35mm scale range. The company went sadly bankrupt in 2008. You can find a catalogue of all miniatures made by them on this fan page.
