Buddhist Hand

Buddhist HandsI have long had a fascination with disembodied hands. They have always delighted me, but creeped me out at the same time. Many other disembodied hands have been covered on my blog such as Hand Soap, Baby Soap Hands, Spooky Wall Hands and Hand Hooks. I have one room in my house that is reserved for my hand fascination and all of my disembodied hands are sent there. I must admit it is a very creepy room, but it makes me happy. I often find my hands in antique and junk stores, but once in a while I find them brand new like this Buddhist Hand from Z Gallerie. They often surprise me with some of their offerings. My only problem would be the price. I’m not sure I want to spend $99.95 on a hand, when I already have two attached to my body and a room full of them. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find it at some garage sale in a few years when the sucker that bought it has decided it’s not hip anymore. Come to think of it, I’m not sure how this love of hands came to be. Maybe it’s the whole obsession I had with Thing from the Addams Family when I was a kid. I still want a live one, so I buy things like this Buddhist Hand hoping that all of the disembodied hands in my house will eventually pull a Toy Story and come to life. I can dream can’t I?

Toddlerpedes

ToddlerpedeA while back I posted a picture of a strange doll sculpture. As I was poking around on the internet I finally came across where it originated from and a little bit about it. These doll sculptures are created by visual artist Jon Beinart. Toddlerpedes evolved over the years to imitate insects and mythological creatures. “I like the idea that the dolls i use in my sculptures have played important roles in so many childhoods. Personalities were attributed to each doll, which have come together to form a mega-personality… A sculpture that screams ‘Look at me!’

Now you can help him build a gargantuan Toddlerpede sculpture. “Jon is desperately searching for recycled dolls. He needs thousands of plastic doll parts to finish his latest art project, which he aims to complete by the end of 2010. Jon intends to tour an army of gargantuan Toddlerpede sculptures in public galleries throughout Australia. Your pre-loved dolls would help greatly in making an artist’s dreams come true. To donate your unwanted dollies, or doll parts, for this ambitious art installation please contact Jon.” If you are a completely non artistic type of person here is your chance to be part of a piece of art
