Apocalyptic Pinatas by creaturekebab Apocalyptic Pinatas by creaturekebab
This was my piece for Musma Gallery's [link] STICK ME HARD 2 Exhibition.

The four Pinatas of the Apocalypse. :D Death, Famine, War and Conquest.

The theme of the show was "the worst case scenario" (Crisis, New World Order and Secret Society, Climate Change, Pollution, Apocalypse) I chose Apocalypse and researched it in the Bible and Online.

I decided to work to my strengths and keep it fun and colourful, but I hope you can tell they represent the four horses.

If your confused about the dead Bees, they represent the recent decline in Bumble bees. No Bumble bees = No pollination = No food. Read this for more info [link]

The bombs falling from the War horse were inspired by Disney [link]

Sadly, the horses got lost in the mail (I need to go shout at the Royal Mail) :XD: and only the innards turned up to the show. I hope they turn up, but at least I got some photos. :nod:

I adore how you made reference to the bee problem!
People don't realize that the "be" of "to be or not to be" oughtta be spelled "bee"!

They are so wonderful its such a shame they got lost, if I'm ever sending anything important I always pay the extra to go recorded delivery, its just not worth the risk.

AWESOME! You HAVE to plush these guys!!!
Gutted about being lost in the post- I've had a few problems with stuff going missing and it sucks, I ordered 4 metres of this brown fleece I hunted everywhere for and it got lost :(

When I was in Liverpool I went to the sorting office to collect a parcel I missed and watched this guy T.H.R.O.W.I.N.G parcels and letters into a trolley like he was playing basketball! some of those parcels had fragile tape and stickers on them!

They used to have pink horsey pinatas in Woolworths...I'd love to buy on and some tissue paper and re-do it as one of these! That would be so cool.....and fill it with stickers!!!

Ah! Jenni real sorry to hear about the postal problems that's crazy & annoying to hear. I've so far never had a problem with royal mail but it's happened enough around me that I get slightly nervous when I post something of any value :(

The whole little set looks great though, and like you said at least you have the photos :)

New theme for you to work with, I didn't follow the disney link but does it happen to be like the war propaganda movie they did?
Anyway it's clear that you played by your strengths, well done! The end of the world couldn't look more fun!

Lol! Well they emailed me to let me know the horses were missing. They seemed very upset about it. I sent they a little plan in the pacakage that got to them. They must have been like... "er... so there were supposed to be horses?" :XD: Next time I'll send everything in the same parcel. I knew something like this would happen. I'm going to get a claim form tomorrow. As I insured them for £30. ;) Always worth doing that by the way.
