    Freak Baby Museum: Octopus Baby, sideshow sign, 32x24 inch, acrylic on panel, 2009, Takeshi Yamada

    The two-headed baby, lobster baby, octopus baby, mermaid baby, penguin baby, and three-headed baby (rogue taxidermy works / sideshow gaffs) were all displayed for this freak show style circus sidehow named “Dr. Takeshi Yamada’s Freak Baby Museum” at the former Dreamland Amusement Park in Coney island, Brooklyn, New York in 2009. Dr. Yamada created all the artworks and sideshow signs for this grind show. In addition, he also worked as the sideshow talker (outside) and lecturor (inside).
