Off Scene Akademie Kit from Erni Bar

This fantastic collaged box "In the Name of the People" arrived with this hauntingly beautiful porcelain doll inside and intact. The seed pod is soft and fuzzy and I can't help but think of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and am waiting for it to hatch. The two together make me think of birth, growth, being frozen in time, arrested potential, fragility of life, . The box is collaged from top to bottom and is Three dimensional as Erni's work always is. I really love the porcelain doll and it has a new home in one of my lucky mojo curio cabinets. I did have to wrestle it out of my girl's hands a few times.Thank you so much for this thoughtful package Erni-very special

64 years young Erni! Off scene Akademie has been very gratious in accepting me, since being an outsider is a requirement for admission as far as I can tell. It looks like a doll cemetary but I love what you did with the porsche crash. Making you some puzzling art
