In a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, dwells the ghost of an old woman. Her name is Senobia Cerrud. Some time ago she transformed her house into the Museum of Antiquities of All Species to exhibit a very peculiar collection of works and objects meticulously classified. For years she has been getting up early to go out to look for what others throw away, recovering what she could use to “make her ideas”, things she imagined and learned to make on her own. With them she created a world full of fantastic beings, many made from things discarded in the trash, that now accompany her in the life she chose to live forever.
