Diorama: "I Coulda Been a Contender"

Here is another one of my dioramas--a work in progress--inspired by old black and white movies, using tiny (approx. 4" tall) stuffed animals and gray yarns. This is from On the Waterfront, that famous scene with Brando/ Terry (bulldog) lamenting about his life to his brother Steiger/ Charley (a pig). I'm still experimenting with adding text to the dioramas. See below for the full quote, though you probably have heard it a million times and know it by heart.

Terry/ Marlon Brando: "You don't understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody. Instead of a bum...which is what I am..."
