Obscure Artifact Auction: Lot 1: 11:34.52

 

11-34-52

We’re tidying up the Castle Borax Artifact Dungeon, in case of nuclear war, which means that for the first time I’ve had to consider actually (shudder) selling some of the artifacts  collected through various adventures, mostly classified. Because of the delicate nature of these items, they were originally intended for posthumous release. But, oh well.

Bids will be entertained on this Devotional Alter, looted by pirates from the Extremely Small Isle of Anthropomorphic Ants just previous to its obliteration by a relatively modest tidal wave, occurring at  11:34.52 PM 4/17/1782. Amazingly, the technology of the tiny, doomed inhabitants of this isle had progressed to a point equivalent to modern anthropomorphic humans, as evidenced by the clock (which froze at the moment of the destruction of the island) and what appears to be glittery polymer clay.

This a full commanding 2.25″.  Place it just off-center on your massive marble mantle, lit with a tiny, tiny, incandescent spotlight, for an artistic understatement that will leave the most jaded of cognoscenti quavering in weepy revelation.

Bids start at $21,701.42, and will be entertained for an indeterminate amount of time

Concrete Jungle

I found a lost valley of 1960’s Miller-Melberg Concrete Playground Sculptures. A thrilling wildlife tableau unfolded.

Concrete Cheese Threatened by Concrete Turtle

 

The Big Red Concrete Cheese felt threatened by an approaching Concrete Turtle

Refused help from a nearby Concrete DNA, the Cheese Stands Alone and affronted

Meanwhile the world’s most minimalist Concrete Horsies stood around pretending nothing was happening

The Concrete Cheese needn’t have worried: The Concrete Turtle was having an existential crisis and felt rooted in place by ennui

Ultimately, the Concrete DNA reached a point of acceptance
