Gallery 13 - Gordon's Palace, Khartoum
BACK TO GALLERY 12 - GALLERY HOME - GO TO GALLERY 14

This model seeks to represent the Governor General Palace at Khartoum, occupied by General Charles Gordon during the siege of Khartoum by Mahdist forces from March 1884 to January 1885. This is almost entirely guess work, as I could only find one drawing of the palace before the siege and the only photos that appear to exist are of the ruins. The model draws heavily on the palace as depicted the 1966 film. The model measures 35cm x 200cm and 200cm.
