In the play of Macbeth by William Shakespeare, the main character, Macbeth, is told by three witches that he was to become a king. This information prompts him to murder King Duncan which in turn makes him face constant pressure from multiple sides. His desire to receive and maintain power forces him to make questionable decisions as well as to turn to others in the story, including, for example, the witches and Lady Macbeth.

Although the conflict began between the two prosperous families, many other characters took part in the play’s disastrous end as well, which will be proven through Friar Lawrence’s senseless decisions and impatience, the Prince failing to follow his own laws, and Capulet’s gruesome parenting. The brutal feud between the two houses is prolonged for years, so much where some of the characters had been injured, and some have died. For example, Tybalt—Juliet’s cousin, and Mercutio—Romeo’s best friend, both depart from the play because of the imprudent fight between the Montagues and Capulets.

Shakespeare has written numerous famous plays, MacBeth being one of his darkest plays, touching up on the topic of the thought that power sometimes leads to corruption, and how it can manipulate someone’s thoughts and actions, bringing them to do things they thought they never would. In MacBeth, there are many examples of MacBeth trying anything to gain power, even if the guilt will eat him alive.

I chose to make a model of the scene when Macduff’s soldiers carry wood up the hill to portray the witches giving Macbeth double meanings, and in turn giving him false hope. I chose to make a model that portrays Macduff’s soldiers carrying trees up the Dunsinane Hill, with Macbeth standing alone at the top of the hill. Macduff’s soldiers are carrying bark on their backs to disguise themselves and sneak into Macbeth’s castle. We chose to have Macbeth alone at the top, staring at his kingdom to portray the struggle between Macbeth and his country. The people that he rule do not trust his either his kingship, nor his honesty, and this shows in the faceoff between Macbeth and Macduff’s army.
