Ribbonesia is an art project by artist 'BAKU' Maeda. Turning ordinary ribbons into animals and animal heads since 2008, the sculptural bows are a beautiful example of talented artistry and handiwork.
Shaped like bears, panda bears, foxes, lions, horses, frogs, seals, birds, dogs and more, Ribbonesia has also begun to sell wearable bows and created a board book of their creations.
I bet none of your Christmas or Hanukkah gifts have bows this pretty.
Their latest range of wearable bows; Fox, Cat, Lion and Dog shown below, can be purchased:
