    I saw these on Regretsy this morning... they're amazingly grotesque, and well executed... but not something I'd ever buy or want in my house! They give me the creeps :yikes:

    I can just imagine one of the dogs stealing it off a shelf and carrying it around in front of guests... and then having to explain that it's not actually a giant hairy cyst with teeth, but a piece of artwork. lol.

    So... would you buy one of these?

    What are they for? I agree that they are well done, whatever they are.

    very cool, but I can think of a million other things I'd rather spend 150 bucks on.

    Why would I want those little horror shows in my house?!

    I mean..they are well done and realistic. I just would never want something like that around

    alright, well, maybe at Halloween. But that's just really not my decorating style otherwise lol I like decorations and art to be intriguing, but pretty as well.

    Not for that price, but they're wildly amusing.

    I have to say no...

    I do have to respect the skill of the artist though :)

    I do have some more unusual decor... I have animal bones that are part of my living room decorations. However fleshy art like that is more of the creepy and intriguing, but not to my taste variety for me.

    I voted I would never want one but they're intriguing,

    however, if someone gave me one as a gift, I probably would proudly display it :p Not like...on my coffee table, but on a shelf somewhere with other knickknacks. I also have some fossilized turtle poop and preserved insects, so not sure my opinion counts.

    I'd also consider buying one if I was an art collector, or owned a certain business - maybe some kind of nightclub or offbeat store.

    Also, I find the term "Fleshettes" way more disturbing than the actual product....
