Peculiar? Possibly

Not only is the outside of Viktor Tinkl's property fascinating... inside his "showroom" is just as quirky and different and rather morbid too. Lots of words can be used to describe his art.... peculiar, eccentric, unconventional, strange, bizarre.... they all fit.

Turn the wheel on the left on this device and the playing card skeletons come to life. Wish I had made a video of this.


Judith Tinkl is an accomplished quilt maker and textile artist and many of her works are on display along with her husband's weird and wonderful creations. Look closely at these pieces... what are they made of?


 A new use for surplus office supplies?

More photos to come. Post scheduled while I'm away this week.

Whimsical, strange, and eye catching!

I'm thinking this guy needs to take some mental tests but he'd probably break the machines! But the people in that first photo remind me a lot of a sixth-grade music class I taught one year!

Fascinating, unusual and some a bit strange, but intriguing.
