Visual Archaeology 101

Some things we’ve seen (who doesn’t love a wall of lunchboxes?), but it takes a certain sensibility to unearth visual wallops in objects that others would commonly pass by. How about an old rooftop air vent found in New York City on the lower east side of Manhattan? Or the canine teeth of an antique iron ice saw blade?

That sensibility belongs to folk art dealer/visual designer Mark Indursky. Check out his website I’m not so secretly jealous of some of the great articulated figures he has in his collection, but you got to love a guy that really knows how to hone in on vintage pieces that have great surface and visual appeal.
