A red bird perched on an almost completely jet black carnivorous bird house is an original sculpted vinyl piece by artist Blaine Fontana for Kid Robot Black.
Produced in a limited edition of 200, each piece is hand numbered with the artist's signature engraved on the back. Packaged in a display box, Domestic Hunger also has two options for installation - hanging or wall mounted.
“Like a siren, Domestic Hunger lures. Grounded by gleaming roots spreading from its base, its glossy upturned roof and weathered texture speak of home. A home with pointed teeth and hungry tongue. Like an insatiable pet, it must be fed.
Every house is hungry for company.”- Kidrobot
$500 USD each.
