For the OTT swap, I made a  miniature cemetery( about 3.5 inches) for my partner. It is inspired by the musicians from the movie "The Nightmare before Christmas".


The three musicians play a discordant tune in the cemetery.

The fish-accordion player jumps on rhythm.


The giant worm-saxophone player swings and rotate from side to side.




The guitarist plays with his hands.

Behind the musicians, there is a willow tree, a red rose grows in front of a tombstone and a skeleton comes dances at the entrance of the crypt.


I made the mechanism from wood, glass and metal.




You can see it move here.

What a totally awesome creation. I am beyond words at this moment. Can I come to your house and play with it?  Grin I am working on a Nightmare Before Christmas theme for early December, and am frantically trying to get the movie, watched it before, but years ago, and no true TV now...this totally rocks...and I did rock for you. What a wonderful project. I love art with moving parts. This one looks complicated, and must have taken a bunch of time.
Neat theme, neat interpretation. Love the metal look. Steam punk, anyone? You have a done a fine job with this. Thanks for sharing the wonderful eye candy!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

It's an excellent idea to have a Holy crap folder. I feel honored that the cemetery will be in it. Thanks a lot.

What a totally awesome creation... I love art with moving parts...Thanks for sharing the wonderful eye candy!

I love arts with moving parts too. Maybe it's the kid in me?
I had planned to use stone and metal but after looking at pictures from the movie, I decided all metal to try to convey the mood of the movie.
Perhaps you could watch the movie on your computer? It's a movie that really grew on me.
Thanks a lot for all the compliments. I am grateful for the rocking!

Totally awesome!
Thank you!

Whoa, this is off the charts! Your animated art is so amazing. I'm glad I don't know where your swap partner lives, or I would have to seriously consider a little larceny.  Cheesy
