Hey Peeps!

After watching the series from Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities series I’ve been newly introduced to this idea I later found out was common among the bizarre. While I look to make my own over time I’d love to see what some of yours looks like! Anyone got any spooky stuff or beautiful cabinet pieces you’d be willing to show photos of? I searched and couldn’t find any from bizarre performers and figured y’all would have something unique Smile.

Stay Spooky,

Bernardo

I have the Cabinet de los Muertos, which is a beautiful piece of art. Also have Crookes Residual Ectometron, another beautiful piece. There is something special about a piece of art produced by an actual artist than by yourself, unless you happen to have those skills. Of course the downside is it is usually pretty expensive.

Oh Curator! I've seen so many pictures of your beautiful collection over the years and each time I spot something else that I hadn't noticed before that just takes my breath away!

We all have to start somewhere Bernardo. This my own humble cabinet that I have built up over the years. The joy is knowing that everything in there has a story behind it and has the ability to put a big smile on my face at the magical reaction it can cause in others.

I'm also very fortunate to know that a number of the little poppets in coffins that I create reside in some of the most incredible cabinets of curiosity around the world.

Can someone shoot me a PM on how to post pictures now? My old method no longer works since the Café went down awhile back.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

I love the mix between contemporary figures from movies and original antique artefacts.
