wow where did these come from?
Ditto the above question! I love the two skeletons that look like they're embracing in the first picture!
Those are some interesting and somehow spooky pictures. WHere'd you find them?
These are really cool vintage miniatures, where did you get the pics?
Even the Mightiest of Men (tm) could barely suppress a shudder at the sheer hideousness of the tableau...
Those are great! The second one surely reminds me of work, heh.
They are called Diableries. If I'm not mistaken they are old French paper sculptures from the late 1800s. I don't remember exactly where I found these images but I do remember the Satan Malade one was possibly a bit of a Napoleon satire.If you want to see more of these very cool sculptures you can go here:http://users.telenet.be/thomasweynants/diableriesbiblio.htmlThe pictures are a bit small but still very, very cool to look at!
The last one looks like it should be a Georges Melies movie
It does! He had the neatest visuals!
I love these!
