I didn't believe it could happen! Despite showing this monster under the REPROS tab on this page, AND despite a warning under BELIEVE IT? that this figure was being listed on eBay as "Jesus Christ as the good shepherd in the Garden of Paradise"....somebody bought it. I am not sure if he bought the eBay figure for GBP450 or if he bought it somewhere else. Anyway, this hideous reproduction of a wonderful Staffordshire farming group has a new home!
The new owner found my site and realized his problem. He wrote to me: "I came across your website and now know that The piece I purchased is a reproduction of the piece Jesus Christ In Paradise. I would appreciate your advice on the piece as to value if any the piece has no markings and no damage. I await your response."
A reproduction of Jesus Christ in Paradise? Please explain! And I don't do appraisals, but value? Ha! I replied very nicely, condoling and consoling. I have yet to have a reply. Ninety-nine percent of the inquiries I receive are about reproduction figures. It takes an awful lot of time to answer them all, but I do. Frequently, I get no response. Sometimes bad things happen to good people,but sometimes people get just what they deserve.

I am fascinated by this story. Do you say this was bought for £450.00? Really!?
