    Objet Trouve – The Bonymaen Venus


    Wiki Definition - Objets trouves can mean:

    Found objects, use of an object which has not been designed for an artistic purpose, but which exists for another purpose already, in arts including music and sculpture

    Found art, an art movement founded by Marcel Duchamp which uses undisguised, but often modified, objects that are not normally considered art materials

    I found some items in my late father-in-law's toolbox. I have no idea of their name or real use but I am considering mounting them for display. One item in particular reminded me of the Venus de Willendorf and I’ve had some fun creating a few images with it. The whole subject of the Venus figurines is a fascinating subject in itself and whilst mainly European it does span continents. I have seen examples from Asia, Japan and North America.

    but for now I’ll just carry on and have some more fun

    very witty work, that last one. I love the finished products. Makes me curious to see the original "ingredients". But I suppose it is just a photo of some eggs.
