Wearable Animals That Won't Piss Off PETA. The Gathering By Alexander Blank.
Presently showing at the Galerie Rob Koudjis, a Netherland gallery for unusual and artful jewelry (or jewellery) , is a collection of modern animal head brooches by artist Alexander Blank.
Crafted of silver, plexiglass, rigid foam and lacquer, the animal heads are highly stylized. With a matte black finish and a silver pin backing the brooches can be worn as pins or exhibited as art.
Here are all 13 animal pins (Ed's friend, as the artist refers to them) from the exhibit, in alphabetical order:
