I don't know why, but I find that creepy as hell.

Oh, my! Only the French can make a Freudian Slip like that! Looks like an exploration of the German fascination and acceptance of Totalitarian social organization and dominance to me. Yeah, I think it's creepy too!

With the deep sea diver figure all I hear in my head is Ozzy's "Iron Man". That weirds me out.

That thing is so steampunk. :D




The people who design the parades and festivals in the US should take notes. Cartoon balloon characters have nothing on this. Epic.

Ok, better late than never, but I just now read the story behind the gigantic marionettes. That is actually quite cool when you put all the details with it. At first I thought it was just done as some type of random festival show. I can only imagine how much time and energy went into sculpting the marionettes. There is a lot of detail there and the excellent work of the puppeteers is what makes it so life-like and damn near creepy. Nice find Right Turn. Never hurts to bring a little worldly culture to the table. ;)
