Industrial Revolution Nightmare Dream House
This is the kind of dollhouse that would inspire a young Jame Gumb to keep guests in a hole in the basement and take up lampshade sewing. Fantastically detailed and hauntingly manicured, these “miniatures” created by French artist Marc Giai-Miniet are hardly pint sized and demand super-sized respect. I’m pretty sure this is where Polly Pocket goes if she disobeys the commandments of her God. In a somewhat related note, I’m pretty sure I signed a lease in the mid 90′s to rent a room in one of these joints in Bed-Stuy. Luckily my Mom made me stop the check and cancel the deal although imagine the additional creativity-inducing emotional damage that I would have endured. Who knows, I might have been our generations Hieronymus Bosch. Damn you Mom and your protective nature!
