Objet Trouve – The Bonymaen Venus

Objet Trouve – The Bonymaen Venus

Wiki Definition - Objets trouves can mean:

Found objects, use of an object which has not been designed for an artistic purpose, but which exists for another purpose already, in arts including music and sculpture

Found art, an art movement founded by Marcel Duchamp which uses undisguised, but often modified, objects that are not normally considered art materials

I found some items in my late father-in-law's toolbox. I have no idea of their name or real use but I am considering mounting them for display. One item in particular reminded me of the Venus de Willendorf and I’ve had some fun creating a few images with it. The whole subject of the Venus figurines is a fascinating subject in itself and whilst mainly European it does span continents. I have seen examples from Asia, Japan and North America.
