I have some new pictures from Wurmland to share with you. My explorer friend, who still prefers to remain nameless because she goes incognito to many odd places and likes to blend in, has delivered some images of the animals of Wurmland. She obtained these pictures at great personal risk because there is no zoo there, these creatures just wander around!
This is Lila-Mae, she made an appearance here once before (under Going Western). I didn’t know then that she is a Wurmlandian horse!
Another grazing quadruped known as a ‘kow’. I wonder if this one gives gives milk and if its’ green?
Here we have a picture of the Kalypso Hind, a type of deer that inhabits the rocky outcrops of wurm burrows.
Another picture of a Kalypso Hind, this time a fawn. Notice that her eyes are much larger than her parent’s; my friend said the eyes grow smaller as the hind ages. The science behind this phenomenon is still under study.
Our last picture for today is of the Diamondhead Ibex, named for, well, you can figure it out! He lives in the vast grasslands and uses the bony prominences of his head to dig out the soft roots of indigenous grasses.
Next time I’ll share the rest of the animal pics. See you then!!
My explorer friend finally smuggled some pictures of the artwork supported by Van Goate of the Museum of Wurmland. I can’t believe these pictures hang in a museum! I used to do these as a child! But I promised last post that I would share them with you, so here they are. Judge for yourself.
This one’s titled “Amoeba.” Looks more like a jumbled mess to me!
Who drew this one? “Baby Girl” must have been drawn by a baby.
Yep, I can see why this one is called “The sneer.” Can you?
“Monkey Baby” indeed! Cute monkey face.
“Feotus” is kind of creepy. Is this what wurms looks like before they’re born? Hatched? Formed?
This one is called “Give Face.” What does that mean? Is this the wurm version of vogueing?
So what do you think? The work of an artist worthy to hang in a museum? Maybe in Wurmland. But more likely to be found hanging on a refrigerator in a family kitchen in our world!
Next time we’ll take a look at some of the fauna of Wurmland. Very nice animals wander around that land!
So our journey into Wurmland continues with new pictures from my explorer friend. Tonight she brings us the following citizens of this strange wurld.
First up is Van Goate, curator of Wurmland Museum. Artists vie for his approval but few get it. He’s a bit stuffy and pretentious. He also prefers to be called V.G.
Here is the artist Henri. He has been trying for years to have his sculptures accepted into the Museum but V.G. refuses to even consider his work. This has driven Henri a little mad.
Another tortured artist V.G. refuses to recognize is Goren Blues. His primarily blue paintings have been repeatedly turned away by the Museum and Goren is close to tears most of the time.
Our final artist of the evening is Nall Von Ouse. He is a distant relative of Goren Blues and is a performance artist. In protest to V.G.’s strict museum policies, he performs outside the Museum Burrow mocking both V.G. and the artists represented.
I asked my explorer friend about the artists that were represented by the Museum and she said her contacts were trying to smuggle out some their pictures but I would have promise not to tell where they came from. I may have them in a few days. I’ll keep you posted!!
The other day I met an explorer who went to a far away place and came back with these extraordinary pictures of indigenous residents of this odd land. She shared them with me and now I share them with you!
This is Dan’l Boon and he was the explorer’s guide through the Land. He introduced her to all kinds of folks.He looks as though he has seen a lot of trouble in his life with all those wrinkles!
And speaking of wrinkles, here is the Wurmmeister, known affectionately as “the Old Man.” Wow! Lot’s of wrinkles on him, guess it is all the worrying from being in charge.
The is Frank Lloyd and he is the main builder in the village. He makes sure everyone has a safe, comfortable and stylish burrow to live in.
Our last picture for today is of Jester Jack. He is the joker of the village and apparently, played several tricks on my explorer friend – like putting toothpaste inside her boots.
There are more pictures to come, so we’ll see you next time!!
Once again, we dive deep, deeper into the darkness. The further down you go into the ocean the less light there is and fish need really big eyes to see with. These two fish have super big eyes and live alongside the volcanic rock formations on the bottom of the ocean.
The first one is the Sapphire Butte, named for his coloring and flat face.
This second fish, the Bulbous Billy, is named for his prominent nose-like feature.
We rise back to the surface to see our final fish on this visit. She is known as the Orange Arabesque and is a rare find among the tropical coral reefs in the Eastern Seas.
We will visit the ocean again soon. Our next journey will be to the strange world of Wurms!
