My question – if the smurfs are satanic – then what is Gargamel? My second question – how do these people get their own TV show?
Not quite so cute now. Are they. When you think about it, Smurfs are more likely to be anthropomorphised rodents than little hominoids.
The artist, Nate Hallinan explains his approach…
“The Smurf is actually the result of a symbiotic relationship between two organisms. We believe that Smurfs put their ’embryos’ in the button of a developing mushroom. From a distance, Smurfs seem like they are wearing a hat and pants but as you can see this is a fallacy. The fungus provides camouflage and protective epidermal layers for the creature, while the creature provides nutrients and mobility for the spreading of spores.”
I’d never really thought about the parallels between Smurfs and Avatar before – a bunch of blue creatures fighting off an oppressor in their homeland.
These are cool. I’ll be posting more from where they come from shortly.
