strangely appealing: mounted wolf head

whitewolf.jpg

The other week I discovered the new Sarah Cihat ceramics (thanks design*sponge) and have been thinking about this piece (above) ever since. She’s created a few of these Wolf Head sculptures, in black and white, both wall mounted and tabletop. I find them eerily beautiful and mildly ironic, like they belong on Little Red Riding Hood’s trophy wall. The single gold tooth gives it a slightly too-hip vibe (a wolf with a grill?). I don’t even know their price (mostly like, very high, since they’re available at Barneys in Sept) or how I would feel having one at home, but I am certainly considering it. I wonder how my jackalope would feel about sharing his space? What do you think of it? — Angela M.

and original– I want one–

Honestly. I’m not a fan. It’s a little over the top for me. I’ve no idea where I’d put something like that in my house. Definitely belongs to a gallery.
