Mecca Lecca Hi Mecca Hiney Ho (1991)

Mecca Lecca Hi... collage © 1991 J. Thomson, all rights reservedMy holiday collage of 1991/92 featured the usual cast of surreal actors, props and settings. Borrowing my favorite phrase from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse (Jambi the Genie’s “Mecca Lecca Hi…”) and also making a visual reference/pun on Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Shakespeare himself appears to be daydreaming a star inhabited by chameleons wearing santa hats, which has perplexed a group of Indian women (who are accompanied by a tin man wishing he had more heart).

On the reverse side was another collage, Frog Piano. Both are available in the giftshop.

A woman wears a fish hat, a grandfather clock earring, a brain brooch, and an earthworm necklace, while dreaming of a frog playing the piano. Meanwhile, a man and his pet alligator look on while a spider drops in on her. This was the reverse side of my holiday collage in December, 1991.
