Snow globes filled with sinister scenes of people in peril

Traveler snow globe #254
Snow globe #264 from the “Traveler” series

Artists Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz have been collaborating for the past 22 years. During half of that time, between the years 2001 and 2013, they created a series of snow globes called “Travelers.”

Martin and Muñoz’s snow globes feature unusual and rather sinister scenes of tiny people in peril amid a snowy environment. Instead of the standard corny images of local attractions inside globes that you find at the airport, the contents of Martin and Muñoz’s snow globes are reminiscent of nightmares that were conjured up by an overactive, anxiety-riddled mind. Martin and Muñoz only made 250 of their terrifying snow globes which when they were made available for sale, sold for $750 a piece. Much of Martin and Muñoz incredible work is featured in a book they published back in 2008 called, “Travelers.” When it comes to the snow globes themselves, after a rather exhaustive search of various auction sites, I was unable to locate any available for purchase. To remedy that, I’ve included images of the more sinister snow globes from the “Travelers” series for your enjoyment. Sweet dreams!
