|Dwell zebra papier-mache head|
I'm not sure how I feel about these papier-mache animal busts. I mean, they glorify the killing of beautiful wild creatures, right? Then again, they're completely and obviously fake—the fakeness is the point. (Zebra stripes are not turquoise; elephants aren't newsprint.) So maybe they're the opposite of glorifying. Dwell, Anthropologie and West Elm are all featuring them right now. (All are made in Haiti by a nonprofit organization—which is a nice, self-congratulatory way for us consumers to feel better about our consuming.) Either way, they're cute and pretty. I'll leave the symbolism alone and just enjoy the animal imagery.
