(Link to artist’s website:
Here is the dog
That has no luck
Where is the god
That might help him

Weeping alone
Putting all hope
On the higher powers
Aren’t the prayers heard?

God – G.O.D.
God – Let’s call him G for he has no name
Dog – D.O.G.
Dog – Let’s call him D for it suits him well
G… Guardian, Glimmering Gallant Grace
D… Distress, Disturbing Demure Devout

D hid a bone for G to find
In the midst of the autumn leaves
Swinging it’s tail so excited
Maybe now G will answer to D

God – G.O.D.
Where? Hiding it’s face
Dog – D.O.G.
Wait – Hope is on it’s way?
G… Grudge, Grinning Giver’s Grave
D… Dodder, Deceived Dreamer’s Doom

Winter came and frost covered the land
D saw the bone was untouched
But he couldn’t get it back
For it was deep under the ice
Poor poor D

God – G.D.O.
What did G do? Delusions don’t do a thing
Dog – D.G.O.
Where did D go? Nowhere, it starved to death
G… Gone, Gone, Gone, Gone
D… Dead, Dead, Dead, Dead

Artist’s note:

These are some lyrics from the last winter.
Listen to the song here (click on the “kuuntele” below D.O.G.).

*E’s notes*
I guess needless to comment on why I could relate to it… For those who did not understand it – just enjoy… and think while reading…

A few more works from this artist.

Tomb of a Frozen Rose


Artist’s comments: I was bored and decided put a withered rose to a freezer. This is the outcome of this merry little occurrence.

E’s notes: Have to admit that sometimes very interesting things come out when you’re bored!

Black Stone Pendant


Artist’s comments:
Spent quite a lot of time carving and polishing that damned stone. The chains are silver and were a pain in the ass too. Making jewelry is definitely not my cup of tea but still there is some masochistical satisfaction when the piece is ready.

Skeletal Ceiling Light
Artist’s comments:
Two forged skeleton hands hanging from shackles with reindeer skin strips (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer won’t be coming this Christmas, kids). The iron parts are gas welded together and waxed.Height (hands): 31 cmWidth: 28 cm

Fruit Bowl
Artist’s comments:
A wedding present that with it’s macabre look suited the groom well. The apple in the picture is huge so the actual size of the item might be a bit confusing to comprehend. I forgot to take the measures but it’s about 30 cm wide.
