Tazmazia- Thursday Doors

Welcome to Another Thursday Doors!

This week, you’d better hold onto your horses. We’re setting off on an incredible journey to Tazmazia, located in a town quite literally called the Promised Land. As if that didn’t sound like its from the realms of magic carpets and Aladdin’s Cave, within Tazmazia, you’ll find the miniature village of Lower Crackpot. Trust me. I’d not making any of this up. When you check out the map of Tassie, Tazmazia’s located near the North-West town of Sheffield. It’s real and it’s spectacular.

Of course, no village is worth its socks without an opportunity or thrift shop. These are my second home.

Looks like a bit of “interesting” activity is taking place at this establishment.

This one is called Tournesol House, which is French for sunflower. The sunflower is one of my favourite flowers.

    This cracks me up! You definitely have an artistic bent! Haven’t gotten to my email to you yet, but will arrive …one day:):) As for doors, of course the faux van Gogh’s door!

    We actually managed to meet the guy who created it all and had a bit of a chat. He’s a bit of a whistleblower and there’s definitely a message of too beneath the humour. It was all very clever.

    My goodness, I had no idea such a place existed! When I do my next trip to Tassie, I’m heading to Promised Land and Tazmazia! The name of it had me expecting hedge mazes or something, but this fun miniature village is pretty cool too 😀

    I love art. I went through quite a painting stage awhile back and have no idea why I stopped, and keeping intending to get back to it. That said, I do a lot of photography.
    A few months ago, I visited the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney. It’s Australia’s pre-eminent prize for portraiture. I kept zooming in on the eyes and put a post together of eye shots, which i thought you’d enjoy. It’s followed by a post which outlines the bigger picture. https://beyondtheflow.wordpress.com/2018/05/24/making-eye-contact-at-the-art-gallery-of-nsw-sydney/

    Thanks, Gary. Going through these photos, I’d love to go back again and spend an entire day there, although I’m not going back into the maze. That was too scary.

    I know what you mean. Our household can feel a bit that way as well and my husband certainly would agree with you on the work front, and I won’t even get started on our Australian federal Parliament. We have just landed another new Prime Minister.

    Thanks, Scooj. I think I might’ve peaked too soon posting my best door on my third week. I have more from Tazmania next week so stay tuned.

    Love these doors. The Mayoress’ is fabulous, so formal and tongue in cheek. The sunflower door remind me of the house that was painted entirely with Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and then was subject to sign ordinance violations. Dont know how that ever came out.

    Tazmazia also has a huge hedge maze and it has loads of funny and profound sayings throughout. I was relieved the get out of the maze in the end. I was starting to freak out. Such a wuss!

    Thanks very much, Judy. I love murals and street art as well. They can be so clever. Tazmazia was amazing.
    Best wishes,
