Doll Shop

I was in Rome at the start of the year with my girlfriend and came across this little shop window on a side street. Immediately I thought of the old Svankmajer and Brothers Quay films, if you don't know anything about these films check out this site.
There's loads of old stop motion animation links and videos of the old masters

and youtube

and here

Well there is definitely a story in this little shop. I had a look in the window and behind all the dolls is a little work shop with all sorts of antiques and trinkets, it wasn't open though. So got back and started having a look around the eld inter-web and found a load more people through the years had been taking photos of the same shop front. Lots of different arrangements...more of a story.

So now I have an idea for a short.

Here's a few more I found.
