Odd Art: Body Parts for Your Home and Garden!

Yes, it's time for another very special post on Odd Art! To-day we have part II to our previous post on art that truly "makes a statement"-- this time by strewing various body parts all over your home and garden. We're not really sure exactly what this "statement" is, but we're dying to find out!

This classically beautiful “Lovers’ Embrace” is a sculptural indoor wall relief by Carlos Fernando Inglesias. Considered one of the greatest contemporary odes to necrophilia, this piece fits beautifully into any living room or foyer. Cast in designer resin at 2 1/2 feet tall (!), this romantic portrait depicts a hairless, legless woman passionately embracing a headless torso with severed limbs and gorgeously flexing muscles. It is truly a work of beauty and love.

Whereas the "Lover's Embrace" alludes to the great classical masterpieces, this “Face of van Gogh” wall sculpture by Carlo Bronti pays homage to one of our greatest modern artists. Although some art critics have complained over the presence of two ears on this sculpture, no one can argue with the fact that it takes van Gogh's style into a completely new dimension. Note the post-impressionist brushstrokes, the emotional expression, and the strong resemblence to Starry Night. It's perfect for the nursery or bathroom!

Moving on, we now come to“The Nightmare” wall sculpture by Alan Dickinson. This intricately sculpted masterpiece is a thinly-veiled portrait of someone with three heads and no body. Exquisitely sculpted and amazingly unique, this is truly a work of art. Buy it for your child today!

It is quite clear that many art collectors would love to own and display Michelangelo's "David" in their very own homes. Unfortunately, it is rather too big and guarded by burly Italians. Luckily, however, these “Fragments of David” sculptures are available for your kitchen, study or gallery. You can now enjoy collecting these designer resin bits and pieces of the world’s most famous sculpture! Buy a few ears and arrange them over your stereo system; buy a few eyes to display in the shower or a couple of noses to place by the toilet.... the possibilities are endless!

And now we reach the coup de grâce: “Skelly, The Garden Swimmer” sculpture. This mysterious masterpiece cannot really be classified in any known art genre, but it will certainly make an impression on the neighbors.

"Parts of David" - not the RIGHT parts, as far as I'm concerned.

Wouldn't it be neat to buy up a bunch of those skeletons and line your driveway with skulls? Tres Goth.
