Strunwwelpeter, Shock-Headed Peter LbNA # 40217 (ARCHIVED)
|Placed Date||May 26 2008|
As a child my grandmother read to me from a book of poems entitled Strunwwelpeter by Heinrich Hoffmann. If you are at all familiar with these German stories you will remember the horrifying images that accompanied the marcab poems warning of the dangers of being a disobedient child.
As an adult the stories had still stayed with me and recently I came across an english translations of the stories with the original artworks. In honor of these poems and pictures that have haunted me since childhood I have tried to recreate them to the best of my ability in a series of box's I intend to place around the bay area with the poems inside.
Here are clues to the first box, Shock-Headed Peter. The stamp I am afraid does not do the original art justice.
Clues: Port of Oakland, Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, north entrance. Walk down the path nearest to the parking lot entrance, towards the water.
10th rock from the right under 4th tree from right.
Under the rock on the side closest to the tracks.
Now go home and clip your fingernails and brush your hair! ha ha.
