This chair is one of my all time favorites. It is the only one of it's kind in the world! Painted in a 1940's carnival spirit this small chair is quite the "one of a kind" piece. A tribute to " the man" Nikola Tesla. After self schooling myself on Tesla I was amazed this brilliant man did not get the recognition in history that his rival Thomas Edison received.........so I built this chair! It explores the possibility of the connection of Tesla testing his Death Ray gun on the same day , June 30th,1908 as the huge explosion in Tunguska, Siberia. 36'' tall x 15'' wide x 11'' deep ( more chairs at artfulchairs.com)

The Tunguska event took place on the morning of June 30th, 1908. An explosion estimated to be equivalent to 10-15 megatons of TNT flattened 500,000 acres of pine forest near the Stony Tunguska River in central Siberia. Whole herds of reindeer were destroyed. Several nomadic villages were reported to have vanished. The explosion was heard over a radius of 620 miles. When an expedition was made to the area in 1927 to find evidence of the meteorite presumed to have caused the blast, no impact crater was found. When the ground was drilled for pieces of nickel, iron, or stone, the main constituents of meteorites, none were found down to a depth of 118 feet.

Several explanations have been given for the Tunguska event. The officially accepted version is that a 100,000 ton fragment of Encke's Comet, composed mainly of dust and ice, entered the atmosphere at 62,000 mph, heated up, and exploded over the earth's surface creating a fireball and shock wave but no crater. Alternative explanations of the disaster include a renegade mini-black hole or an alien space ship crashing into the earth with the resulting release of energy.



Associating Tesla with the Tunguska event comes close to putting the inventor's power transmission idea in the same speculative category as ancient astronauts. However, historical facts point to the possibility that this event was caused by a test firing of Tesla's energy weapon.
