The legendary Headless Horseman (Angel Block Society app)

The Headless Horseman is a fictional character from the short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by American author Washington Irving. The story, from Irving's collection of short stories entitled The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, has worked itself into known American folklore/legend through literature and film.

The legend of the Headless Horseman begins in Sleepy Hollow, New York. The Horseman was a Hessian of unknown rank, one of many hired to suppress the American Revolution. During the war, the Horseman was one of 51 Hessians killed in a battle for Chatterton Hill, wherein his head was severed by an American cannonball. He was buried in a graveyard outside a church. Thereafter he appears as a ghost, who presents to nightly travelers an actual danger (rather than the largely harmless fright produced by the majority of ghosts), presumably of decapitation.

tl;dr

I originally made this for halloween, but the cinematic took a "little" bit time, so here it is.

This took me a good 4 weeks to build and i'm quite happy with the result.

Also hi mom!

Huge thanks to mmmeh from PwnCraftPvP for making the cinematic shots. Love ya man!

Built on mc.pwncraftpvp.com

you can high-five me there ;)

(yay!)

The arm holding the axe looks a bit awkward, but it's still an excellent organics! (Better than I can do)

Try lowering the brush size, and for god's sake go over it afterwards by hand.

You weren't in a rush to complete this, so it really ought to not look like it.

The horse is excellent.

This has to be the best thing in minecraft I have ever seen. Sure I have seen horse statues but never ones this detailed. Also I am real tempted to build a huge jacko lantern for a head filled with fire. Or I have a nice skull schematic I downloaded from somewhere I may use that then make the flames out of lava.

Before anyone says anything yes I know that would make him no longer headless. Also why not use a download link that leads to a site that shows the whole map rendered? Would be awesome for this statue.

the thing is, his shoulders hit the sky limit of Y:256 , so it was impossible for me to make him a head, also he would not be headless then xD

So was this a kind of thing where you make an accidental thing look like you meant to do it? I could just see it "Oh no I hit the skylimit, oh well I will just make him the headless horsemen"
