When I think of snow globes, images of pleasant Christmas settings usually come to mind. Even now, on a hot summer’s day, the thought is kind of refreshing. However, it seems that artists Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz must have had a traumatic incident involving snow globes, because the imagery they have created in their Travelers series is just a tad on the disturbing side. If you want go a step further and actually purchase one, these snow globes can be had for $750 apiece.

Artists Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz construct eerie detailed artistic scenes hidden inside of snow globes.Traditional snow globes house relaxing winter scenes of Evergreen trees, snow-capped houses and horse drawn carriages. However, these snow globes tell a different story.

These two artists have been working together since 1993. They sculpt miniature figures set in snowy outside scenes that depict sometimes horrible situations. Snow globes tells stories and it’s up to the viewer to fill in the blanks of those stories. Some of these miniature people seem trapped in a fairy-tale like story.What they really need, though, is a snow globe with a nuke going off in the middle and have the snow be either debris, blood, or fallout from the blast… yeah.

Talk about it!
