Until recently, there was no impressive flat tin figure from Johann Sebastian Bach, which had pleased both of us. And as son and sister-in-law of a passionate tin-figures-collector, the path to such a piece of jewelry was still a challenge, but with the support of the professional in the family, we were finally successful. 7 artists and creators were needed to make this idea of a small flat tin figure, come true. At first, of course, Bach was needed. Then the next was the painter Gottlob Elias Haußmann, who has known still known Bach personally and portrayed him in two oil paintings. This portrait was the basis for the sculptor who created the Bach Monument in Eisenach; He is no.3. Of this sculpture, another unknown artist made a steel engraving. From this steel engraving another engraver drew the necessary drawing and then he engraved the figure. He is number no. 5. Finally, however, there was somebody needed who could imagine all this as a "tin figure project", that is my husband Peter Bach jr. And without his father the project wouldn’t have come true, so we have the creatives in the project no. 6 and 7. An eighth artist is needed when this so-called raw or bare tin figure comes to the next expert in the team: the painter who can paint so delicately that these tiny figures get faces and the clothes lights and shadows.
Height: 10 cm, weight: 312 g Quite the opposite of the flat tin figure is the 3 dimensional one: It is larger, namely 10 centimeters high, it is massive and it is heavy: a whole of 312 grams. And it is fantastically engraved and high-quality cast.
