Robert: Woman turns moose poop into art
One animals feces is another man’s artwork.
A woman in Maine has made a name for herself after her art went viral for being made out of moose poop.
Mary Winchenbach sells what she calls “Tirdy Works”, figureines, clocks and other wares, that incorporate the “left-behinds” of Alces alces Americana, the North American Eastern Moose.
“Everyone takes a crap,” Winchenbach says. “Everyone goes to the bathroom so everyone can relate to that. The terms that I used to name these products are every day terms that people are used to hearing so I just kind of try to combine the two to come up with something halfway decent that’s funny. For example the first off we make now instead of a cuckoo clock this is a Poopoo o’clock. We took them turds and we cram them in between the number there so there’s one turdy – two turdy- three turdy.”
Winchenbach also mentions all of her Tirdy Works are sourced from local “ingredients”. “The turds are all local. We just go out and track the moose and wherever the moose are there going to take a crap and I have found that when I moose takes a dump you walk about 50 yards in any direction and they take another dump.”
