Product Idea

The Black Carriage

“Lo, beyond the River Blapp
The Carriage comes, the Carriage Black
By shadowed steed with shadowed tack
And shadowed driver driving

Child, pray the Maker let you sleep
When comes the Carriage down your street
Lest all your dreams be dreams of teeth
And Carriages arriving

To wrest you from your berth and bower
In deepest night and darkest hour
Across the sea to frozen tower
Where Gnag the Nameless pounds you

At Castle Throg across the span,
A world away from kith and clan
You’ll weep at how your woes began
The night the shadows bound you

Away, beyond the River Blapp,
The Carriage came, the Carriage Black
By shadowed steed with shadowed tack
The night the Carriage found you.”

From Andrew Peterson's fiction series The Wingfeather Saga, the Black Carriage was used by the Fangs of Dang to capture people (primarily children) and take them to Castle Throg to be turned into new Fangs.

This project would contain the carriage, a horse to pull it, and a "shadowed driver driving." It could also include one or more black crows, which hover above the Black Carriage in the story. This reproduction of the Black Carriage features a fully functioning door and an interior containing two benches. The yoke of the carriage utilizes a 2x2 turntable, alowing the horse to move from side to side.

This model was created in Lego Digital Designer and rendered in Mecabricks.
