My friend Stefan Kayat is a truly original man of many talents. With his folk band, Herr Arnes Penningar, he plays eclectic reimaginations of traditional music, and he’s also a draughtsman, a painter and occasionally a sculptor. Stefan’s asked me to put up a pic of a piece he’d like to sell.
This trussed grey/off-white/purple imp could be named Strung Up or Well Hung. (Just how well he’s hung can’t be seen in the photograph.) Says Stefan:
I made him out of papier-mâché, fabric, glue etc. over a skeleton of re-shaped wire-hangers. The eye is glass, the teeth and claws are PVC putty. He’s trussed with string to a stick and guaranteed not to escape. The idea is to hang him from a hook on the ceiling. Length 60 cm, width 60 cm.
The price is SEK 5000 ($720, €540, Ł365) plus postage. Interested buyers are invited to write to Stefan.
