The new way of doing handicraft

This way of sculpting things three-dimensional is a new approach for providing descriptive teaching material for pupils and students and is offered as part of the new series ‘Historicals’ by brand Forum Traiani ®. Each example of this series including ‘The Praetorian’ invites children to learn facts about historic figures in a playing way. The ancient pagan Gods, gladiators and legionnaires - so-called main characters of Antiquity - can be assembled in a most simple way and take part in a game or stage play of your choice, depicting antique culture for modern recipients.

Those times are over when you had to create similar figures of paper, adding accessories after own design and in doubtful authenticity - if you had such ideas at all. Our cardboard kit Praetorian guarantees to you mobility and lasting usefulness.

Notice that it is constructed of several independent elements which can be taken off and put back to the ensemble. You may position his helmet or his sword in more than one way, without wearing the figure off.

Vividness of the figures

Cardboard kit Praetorian proves its worth above all by clear colors and forms which have been chosen under archaeological aspects and got integrated in this work. History lessons can now be offered in a more plastic way using descriptive figures like this one. Employ the haptic senses of your audience by integrating the cardboard kit Praetorian which is inviting pupils to take it into their hands. That makes it a highly advisable yet seldom used instrument for your teaching purposes.

Perfect figure design

The origin of the word ‘praetorian’ lies in the praetorium, main and central square of a legionary camp. There was the tent of the praetor, a high rank Roman military officer, who surrounded himself with selected men from the ranks to serve him as bodyguards and providing his safety. Later the bodyguards of the emperor inherited the name from them, which is understandable, when you know the first emperor Augustus served first as general of his troops during the civil war period, thus already having trusted praetorians at his side before he became emperor.

Such praetorians can be sculpted from this cardboard kit Praetorian by help of a self-explanatory instruction. They are brought to you in first class printing quality and can be joined in more than one way - so you have varying figures when you employ several. A number of sheets sized 30 x 21 centimeters will bring fun and pleasure while crafting the figures and putting them on stage.
