Saint Sebastian

This is Michael deMeng's interpretation of Saint Sebastian. Cool, creepy, thought provoking, YUM! Michael is a genius in the world of Assemblage....assembling art from found objects. The body for St Sabby is a rubber acupuncture model, then he has arrows, screws, light bulbs and all kinds of fun stuff added. Check out the cat claws above his bight bulb eyes! He is half mummified and washed all over with acrylic washes to "grunge" him up. Ahhhhh, it is truly an honor to be living with this amazing art in my home. Check out Michael's other works at

Fake Nose and Glasses??

Someone recently turned 50. When I first met him he wore big tortiseshell glasses and a mustache. Since his birthday is October 31st I thought this was a fitting reminder of how fare he'd come! Yes, the pumpkin is wearing jazz shoes.
