20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - Nemo's Organ

Captain Nemo's Organ Room
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

    The Nautilus - a submarine of fantastic proportions. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was first imagined by Jules Verne in his epic novel and re-imagined in the 1954 film of the same name.

During the scene where the giant octopus is attacking the submarine, I took my chance - a scene of agitated disorder ripe for the picking!

So I created a 1:12 scale room box for Alpha Stamps for their underwater steampunk theme.

Here is the full corner scene, featuring Captain Nemo's organ.


A steampunk ornately framed gentleman.

The bottle of bubbly has been tipped and is in the midst of toppling, along with the table, completely over.

I use buttons as a backing for collage printables.

The sheet music at the organ, slowly falling to the ground.

The candle and sheet music both in the stage of falling.

I really love this sheet music - printed at 50% to fit the 1:12 scale best.

Book printables from Alpha Stamps falling off the shelf.

Close up of falling sheet music.

Another ornately framed cabinet photograph.

I've "steampunked" this piano in an attempt to make it more organ-like.

Mr. Octopus is holding tight to the submarine and giving it a good shake.

A plastic tentacle really does the trick in setting the scene here.
