Picture: Jacob Petersson (C)

Swedish prop artist Jacob Petersson combines elements of cryptozoology, folkore and folk art to create nightmarishly curious objets d’art. The “Sasquatch Hand” featured here is just one of many unique pieces featured at his website “CURIOMIRA“, which is definitely worth a visit if you’re a fan of art and the unknown.

    does a velveteen Evils painting from Tijuana fit this genre?

       Velveteen Evils may very well.
