Walking through a Wonderland
Legend says that if you know how to build a truck, you can get all the parts required to build it in the shops on Siddiah road. Storytellers have said that even pieces from the World trade centre on the other side of our earth have made their way here. But when I walked down Siddiah road today, I saw a lot more than just spare parts for trucks. Come with me, while I show you some of the amazing things that I saw in this strange and beautiful wonderland –
Look at The Man with Red Eyes. He called me over and asked me to take his picture.
This is The Keeper of the Green Shop
He grows his special Metal Roses here
Look at those strange objects!
This is an enormous bone of a prehistoric animal
And that’s the web of the native Siddiarantula spider which weaves its web out of glass
And these are the coloured eggs of a very rare and secret species of bird for sale, the details of which i am bound by oath not to divulge here
Yes! This place is a gargantuan installation and all those who work here are very skilled and specialized artists.
Look at this brilliant work of art!
Say ‘Ah!’ to these fascinating textures
Here is a painting in rust
And an abstraction in blue
This is some pretty mind blowing sculpture
Oh yes, I know you want to look some more, so I'll tell you how you can go there.
If you click on this magic spot right here and say 'sa mo sa', it will transport you to wonderland where you can see lots and lots more astounding objects and people of great beauty.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
