    Shameless Jan Fabre copy?

    http://bit.ly/gj6vwy

    Speaking about Jan Fabre, he’s certainly worth a blog post!

  • Kyle

    I saw these in person at the Museum of Art and Design in NYC last month. Very interesting to have the smell along with the visual for sure a piece.

    It’s not extremely telling or shocking, but I appreciate the creativity that went into this and enjoyed seeing it.

  • Oliver

    Eerie and wonderful. They look ancient. I bet they smell great, too.

    I prefer them, somehow, to Fabre’s skulls. Though they are a little too similar…

  • I saw this one too in the MAD. Jan Fabre s work was also exhibited in the same room. I didn’t mind the similarity. It has a different meaning.
