Looks like a hodgepodge of things photo manipulated into an image. Not high enough resolution to make anything out and that is likely intentional.

Call it "art".

It reminds me of some of the AI 'created' images I've seen. For example, the abstract image below was created totally by an algorithm fed hundreds of nude paintings. The image above on 'nonsense' objects seems to be basically the same thing, except the algorithm was fed images of random household or retail objects.

I agree this look like an a.i. concocted image. Hardly interesting we see pics of unidentifiable things all the time.

Just a bad, unsharp picture, not sharp enough to zoom in to see what everything is. Stuffed toy animals , ladies jewellery, all kind of things from a gift shop. Nothing weird.

Its at an Art studio LIKE ! place and every city has them and the hippies flock to them and have a table and set their bead toys etc. oh excuuuuuuuuse me ART! up, the University or whatEVER!Host gets the 60% on the sales.




UPDATE: I had that wrong, house gets 40% in the calc its x .6 and invert.  What is a shame is regular folks get word of that, old junky whatever garbage shop or say a fly fishing shop etc. or used clothes, and they're truly <snip> ...or high or something because right away they try working that in for there little fly by night rental place-- well, their tripe is not art. They'd be doing well to get 12 or 15%, oh and let me tell you that really goes over well when you laughingly tell them that. hahhahahahaahaaa!

Could be an AI altered or created image, but honestly I think I could make this in Photoshop with a photo of household items and the "heal" brush in less than 10 minutes. I'm no expert, but I've made enough Photoshop "heal" mistakes to recognize it. :)

  Yeah precisely what I was saying repurposed reused RECYCLED beads, refurbished everything- can we say hodgepodge?, jewelry YAHTZEE earrings and homemade ah STUFF that kinda sorta mimics art.  Old thing seen it a million times in a million cities. However, this spin idea might ACTUALLY, and ODDLY be making them and countless others jumping on the coattails some real coin.

Alrighty that's a wrap and-- well, I for one give a big thanks to
@Dracolley for this:

No, the tumblr post of the one "without the filter" is completely false. This is not an image with a filter applied at all but the doings of a Generative Adversarial Network. More specifically Ganbreeder.

I don't think that was the exact original picture before effects were applied, I think that was someone's attempt to reconstruct what it might have been. For instance, the cuddly Cthulhu looks nothing at all like a Person posing like that, although some of things are like one of those puzzle pictures where you stare at something for twenty minutes and then a picture of Donald Trump leaps out at you. That does, for instance, look like a deer's head on the right, yes, and there is a  giant pepper mill or chess piece of whatever it is peeking out from behind the jewellery on the left.
