I really want this lampimage

Purdy is a Chilean artist whose most recent works include dead animals transformed into everyday household objects.

She says, “It is possible to see my work as something scary, but I find it beautiful.  There is also irony and humour in my objects as well as a criticism of the way animals are treated by society.”

It was a variety of sources.  I Googled “caterina purdy” and used the best pics I could find from a few different sites.

Thank you Google!

I don’t know which is worse!  The chicken because it’s trying really hard to push a lamp out of it’s ass, the cat because it’s about to go all “pet cemetery” on you, or the goat because you’ve got to dig around in it’s innards to find your keys.

I’d vote for the cat because it looks like it genuinely wants to kill you.
