Really Weird Science
Just so you know, the “creatures” in this post are not real. They’re creations from the mind of Alex CF. The collector in me just loves this work and wants to poke around Alex’s studio. If you had to put a name to Alex’s art, I guess you’d call it “Fabricated Macabre Oddities”. his creations are like something out of a victorian age explorers lab. He sells his “collections” on eBay from time to time, but be prepared to lay out the bucks, his “Mountains Of Madness” collection went for $1,000.00 [US].

Mountains Of Madness
1930 - An expedition heralded as a turning point for archeological exploration, the mapping of areas of the earth unseen by human eyes. A 300 million year old cyclopean city, ancient structures spanning miles, sheltered by 34,000 ft mountains. The bodies of alien life forms, the men and women of this city, mummified in the snow, the last remnants of a long lost race. But within this city hung dark secrets, of slave creations who turned on their masters, of sunken cities in darkened caverns, of old ones and shoggoths…

This box was bought back, along with the tattered remains of the deceased, lost to unseen forces. Those who survived shunned any return journeys and the remains and artifacts collected by those now dead were shipped to the miskatonic university for further analysis. The contents were soon lost and finally came to rest in my hands, amongst dozens of other specimens. This surely is a plethora of the unknown, a treasure trove of maddening manifestations and the trappings of an explorer with a need to understand…

Part movie-props, part mad-scientist, part freakish oddities, these “collections” appeal to collectors of all kinds. If only I had the money…
