christmas kitsch…

No words needed!

bring on the dancing horses…

Still with the Salone, i would love to post cutting edge, innovative design…but  didn’t see any. Instead i had to settle for pure spectacle, and i have to say that i kind of loved this 3 metre rearing stallion studded with 20,000 Swarovski crystals. You have to love something that honest in its vulgarity and shininess …and it spun round all day to a sound track of semi decent Neil Young soundalikes…

still life in kitsch…

OK, ok so i have a weakness for snow domes…and dodgy religious figurines…

still life in kitsch on my window sill

Incidentally i love the Italian and Spanish terms  for still life: natura morta / naturaleza muerta – literally dead nature (also the French: nature morte). How come the English is so much more toned down/ less dramatic?…beautiful though…still life…
