The Art of Darkness


January 13th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Trophy HeadJacob Petersson of Curiomira is a Swedish artist and propmaker who creates ridiculously lovely, evocative stuff. I am a complete sucker for Wunderkammer objects, and I would love to have an entire room decorated with the “trophies” and other display items that he turns out.

Readers of this blog might particularly like his Memento Mori Music Box and Dracula Memorabilia (I’m especially taken with the “memorial altar” for Mrs. Dracula), not to mention the preserved fairy and Redcap relic. I love the “implied backstory” which objects like these suggest.

His photos should provide excellent inspiration for all kinds of Wunderkammer projects. He also does commission work, so if you really love his stuff you might be able to talk him into doing something custom.
