Acrobatics: Daredevils on Etsy



Handpicked on Etsy
Again I consider the issue of gravity by focusing on depictions of acrobatic maneuvers that attempt to momentarily overcome its grounding force. Today's featured pieces share the theme of humans and anthropomorphic creatures, either posed in precarious balance or airborne without wings. Just as the acrobat thrills and tickles us with extraordinary feats, today's featured artists tickle our fancy with their delightful creations that please the eye and our sense of humor. Click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings. Prices range from $20.00 to $150.00.
From top left to bottom right, today's featured artists include: lulunjay, nraevsky, yoote, ClaireMojher, magicthreadsdolls, emporium51, maseman, vintagebycrystal

Hi Cait! Thanks for your supportive comment! I love whimsical pieces like these and wish more attention would be devoted to this kind of work on Etsy. As usual, some of today's artists are barely discovered, and I hate to see them banished to obscurity.

=) I love this little collection....I wish I was more blogger savvy...I just recently started blogging not too long ago and it's certainly a nice feeling to be mentioned in your blog not to mention being amongst some other great artists. (found some new favorites!) Thanks for letting me be included!
