It’s been a while since I’ve found something truly worthy of a Drab or Fab post, but when I saw these heads at Anthropologie the other day, I knew they were perfect for one. As a general rule, I’m averse to the idea of having animal heads hanging from a wall, whether they’re real or fake (HOPEFULLY not real, though). But there’s something about these two that draws me in. They’re almost — dare I say it — cute, and even slightly modern.
They are made of recycled cement bags and pages from old books. In the closeup shots, you can really see the detail of the words on the pages used, though you won’t be able to read them unless you can speak French. They have a quirky quality to them that just might make me overlook the fact that they are still — well — animal heads. Intended for a wall. Still, as smitten as I am, I’m not sure how or where they could be used, outside a library or playroom of some sort. And while Anthropologie is generally spot-on with their staged shots of products in a room, I’m sorry to say that the photo below is NOT a stylish solution.
So what do you think? Are they drab or fab? Are animal heads a no-no, regardless of what they’re made of? I can’t wait to hear what you think!
