When You’ve Got Doll Bodies and Time on Your Hands…

This.

IT’S ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!!!

In a shocking development for me, I’m at a little bit of a loss for words on this one.  I’m not sure what I like best about this… I love that the dolls are carefully put together in descending order, best for it to take on the appearance of some fearsome segmented creature with many stomachs to satisfy.

Though the way it’s curved…it sort of looks like Randall from Monsters, Inc., no?

I love that the head doll has weird, platinum-white hair à la the murderous, telepathic space-children from Village of the Damned.

And I love that the baby face just looks so goddamned hungry.

The “WTF WordPress, really?” suggested tag for this post is “Antiques and Collectibles“.  While I can sort of logically determine why this would qualify as a legitimate suggestion, anyone who collects segmented doll carcass-pedes with a hankering for blood…well, that impulse really shouldn’t be legitimized.

A Thought-Provoking Piece of Iconography

We at the MoWTF strive to constantly provide the most exciting works that we can to you, our visitors.  This is why we’re so thrilled to have found a painting that embraces the abstract ideal to perfection.

Abstract art can be viciously difficult to define.  Says one art blogger, “A simple, common definition of “abstract art” is “not realistic.” Yet many artists who call their work abstract, actually do have a subject in mind when they paint. They take a figure or landscape and simplify it, exaggerate it, or stylize it in some way. They are not trying to imitate nature, but to use nature as a starting off point. Color, line, and form are more important to them than the details of the actual subject matter. They want to give a sense or feel for the subject rather than an exact replication.”

jc abstractBra. Vo!  The artist calls this an “abstract painting of Jesus”.  Yet we can see that the details have been either left behind or profoundly stylized so that the artist can convey his or her message.  This is clearly not Jesus but rather, an almost perfect representation of Timecop villain/actor Ron Silver (who I once said hello to at a hockey game),  crowned with the glorious mane that was Michael Douglas‘s Romancing the Stone hair.

"It is possible to experience a painting in such a way that you go beyond what you see..."

“It is possible to experience a painting in such a way that you go beyond what you see…”

Jesus.  Ruthless time-traveling politician.  Adventurer.  He is risen and READY TO KICK SOME ASS!

There are times when you have to wonder what, exactly, gave rise to the creative genius behind certain works of art.  Take this, for example.

I came not to send peace, but a sword. –Matthew 10:34

I mean…it’s not as though you go out and hunt moles for sport.  So the proud owner of this li’l beauty was opportunistic in his or her mole-gathering (though I suppose the same can be said for something like squirrel taxidermy).

Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.  --Matthew 26:52

…’tis enough,’twill serve. Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man. –Mercutio, “Romeo and Juliet”

And they have even managed to evoke a look of agony on the face of the losing mole as a hole is poked in his too, too mortal flesh.

Lieutenant, is that your sword, or are you just glad to see me?  --Mae West

Lieutenant, is that your sword, or are you just glad to see me? –Mae West

And now we come to it: seriously, WTF?  How do you stand there with two mole carcasses and say, “Call me crazy, but I have a plan…”?  Whoever you are, taxidermy visionary and genius, we salute you for your contribution to the beautiful WTFery of this world.  Carry on!  Huzzah!
