CRAZY SH!T I LOVE: NeatoRama's Brass FOAM Skulls!

I'm one of those weirdo's that's always been fascinated with natural curiosities like taxidermied animals, horns, skeletons, etc. So I was super stoked when I started seeing skulls plastered all over the place in interior design circles. A few years ago I bought one of ZGallerie's cool Damian Hirst inspired skulls. And it lived proudly on my coffee table where I enjoyed it immensely...until the day my 3 year old son picked it up and cheerfully tossed it across the room (he thought it would bounce). I was still finding pieces a month later.  I bought another one, but it has to live somewhere that my son and my cat can't destroy it. Which is in a box right now. I take it out to visit and for pictures, but it's just not the same.

Then, a few weeks ago, I found this:


neatorama - here
neatorama - here


I know, right?  It's so freakin' cool. It's pretty close to actual size (unlike the ZGallerie one) and the detailing is amazing - but it's a soft foam. I snapped one up right away (got the last gold one!) and it looks just as good as the product pics. Everyone that sees it thinks it's brass, so I usually pick it up and toss it across the room to them. And that was really fun until someone dropped a martini glass trying to catch what they thought was a 15 pound brass bowling ball being tossed at their head. So now, not so much with the throwing.

But, if this one bounces, it actually bounces! No harm done. Now I just have to keep the dog from chewing it up if it does end up on the floor...

  1. Love this! How do you work in these types of elements without looking like a member of the Adams family? I'm always afraid of going overboard with the odd/weird pieces.

  2. Ha! Yeah, I run that risk too. It's a fine line to walk. I try to keep things from getting too heavy by adding color and other objects that are a little more humorous and not so death-y.
