Sherlock in Miniature and Model

I share the enormous fascination with Conan Doyle's fictional character, Sherlock Holmes.  While Doyle wrote only four novels and fifty-six short stories featuring the detective, the character occupies a large space in popular culture.  It is not surprising that this interest has carried over to world of models and miniatures.

  2. Minor correction: Holmes did not kill the serpent in "The Speckled Band". In the depicted scene, Holmes fends off the snake and forces it back to its owner ....
