The world's only repository for the study and display of Zymoglyphic art, artifacts, and natural history. The creative output of the region relies mainly on the assemblage of natural objects. The museum also presents special exhibits on related topics in natural object assemblage, and maintains a curiosity cabinet of items that reflect the spirit of Zymoglyphic culture.

That's odd -- there isn't much more information on "zymoglyphic culture" anywhere else on the net, else I'm looking in the wrong places.

Very interesting.

...I also am intriguied by the word..."glyph" I know, and even "zeNo" makes sense, but...I'd like to know the etymology...I'll try www.dogpile.com and see what we get...

According to the Curator:

zy'-mo-glyph'-ic, adj. [Gr. zyme leaven + Gr. glyphe carving]
1. Of, or pertaining to, images of fermentation, specifically the solid residue of creative fermentation on natural objects.
2. The collection and arrangement of objects, primarily either natural or weathered by natural forces, for poetic effect

I particularly love the story about how his museum came to be...he didn't think he could be an artist until late in his life, after marrying one himself.

I've seen similar art before, but I don't think anyone had a name for it. So creating a name makes sense. :P

Thanks for pointing that out.
