You need to really see this in person to get the full effect, but let me say it borders on the extraordinary. This older man lives here, I assume by himself, and I have seen him out placing things twice now. A lot gets lost in the snow, but it does simplify it somewhat, as the ground is covered with tokens. 

This space reminds me of the African power sculptures, and the space really does have the feeling of possession. It the case of the sculptures, items are inserted to appease and ward off spirits. What really has me curious is what sparked this creativity(madness), and what was the first item that acted as a seed for the rest of this to compliment, and what is the significance of each of these pieces to the larger puzzle.
