GRIECHISCHER WEIHNACHTSMANN HAT VERSPÄTUNG / GREEK SANTA’S LATE (2015)

Today in the morning a very fine parcel from Thessaloniki, Greece, was delivered to my door by Deutsche Post AG. It contained way too much Christmas goodies that it could be handled by just adding a few photographs at “THE TENTH ART” (https://offsceneakademie.wordpress.com/2015/07/25/die-zehnte-kunst-the-tenth-art-postkunst-mail-art/). Therefore you are all cordially invited having a closer look at what Frau Katerina Nikoltsou understands being High Holy Days mail art. Let’s begin with this Xmas aftermath NOW!

 

01
First, of course, the parcel has been approved by famous art expert Kunsthund Domingo.
02
Beautiful stamps, aren’t they?
03
OSAH = Off Scene Akademie Hamburg, and the Fan Club – well, those were happy days, but it’s all over now!
04
The Grand Opening reveals another nice box of appropriate design.
05
A long time ago, when I’d been a boy, we used to hang them on our Christmas trees too.
06
Sure thing, Kate!
07
Let’s see what it contains!
08
Looks like an …
09
… owl from Athens to me. And it is! Bird of wisdom, made of coloured felt (I think, feels like).
10
Therefore it’s been added spontaneously to the shamanistic trident of Guru Rinpoche.
11
Looks rather mysterious, doesn’t it?

A real trippy BEAR-FOR- BÄR-THING, with an added heart and some pearls, all hidden between those ribbons. Felt too!
13
And there you are! That’s the real McCoy: GREEK CHOCOLATE!!
14
All of it went straight on my Buddhist shrine as food offering, but I feel free to take whatever I like from it (had a few pieces of it already this early afternoon).
15
But the box ain’t empty yet, no sir!
16
See the paper works?
17
NOW it’s been emptied to the bottom, right?
18
I understand, Kate!
19
THANK YOU LUCKY STARS!
20
A world without UHU? Unthinkable horror vision, ain’t it?
21
Yes, yes! The world is starving for it, believe me!
22
Baby …
23
… Snakes?
24
And last not least something very beautiful!
25
Love it certainly too.
26
CHOCO KATE?
27
AH!! Our old “EAT ART” concept. I agree me being the part who has to eat.
28
Who? Me, of course!

  1. GLad it arrived ok, Erni!
    “Greek Santa” is not really “late”, as we celebrated “Agios Vasilis” coming with gifts on New Year’s Day …and a few(like in Spain) have gift giving on January 6 ,with the Three Kings Feast. But, yes, it was meant to arrive by Christmas Day, oh, well…
    EAT ART all through the holidays! Yay!

  2. By the way, “OSAH” still is active, right here on your nice blog / website! And of course, there still is a “Erni Bar Fan Club”…(but we float around the world now and not on that platform 🙂

    1. Well, in Germany Christmas is from December 24th-26th and therefore the title. The Fan Club hadn’t been my idea back then as you will remember, and I have no idea whether the group still exists or not. Thank you again! I received THREE important pieces of mail art today. One heavy parcel from Bremen’s DADANAUTIK and two larger cards from the USA. I’ll show the pictures at THE TENTH ART later this afternoon.
