They've been getting insane free publicity on every blog out there. Cool-looking though - I'm a fan of Bosch's imaginary Hell.

They've got a copy of Rodin's Thinker. The orginal was a scupture that has been reproduced ad nauseum - a cursory google search turns up Thinker bookends and the like. Is it just me, or does that kind of make the collection seem more banal than it otherwise might have been?

I've poked around as much as I could... Does anyone know if any of this is for sale?

I think a lot of these look really cool. Under the contact link it list galleries where they seem to be for sale. The US one is in Florida.

I've seen this around a lot of places, too, but I do think a lot of this stuff is pretty cool. Including the Rodin piece is pretty hokey, but I have always really liked Pompom's work, and he's not nearly as well known.

I'm especially into those Escher globes. They look like they could be pretty intense.

more like high-brow kitsch. The world is turning in on itself.
