    Amazing skill, but the product is rather creepy. Not for me.

    I wouldn't spend the money for one - but if one was gifted to me, I would probably keep it up alongside my see-no-evil monkies carved out of bone that give me nightmares. LOL

    Ditto. I wouldn't pay money for them because I'm broke and don't buy decorative type stuff. But I think they're awesome.

    Okay. The thing that bugs me about them is they resemble something called a hydatidiform mole (a type of trophoblast) -- a type of false pregnancy where an unfertilized or even a defective ovum (and sometimes a twin from a viable fetus) goes into a weird growth pattern and you wind up with a mass that often bears some humanoid features, sort of an eye, or fingers, hair . . . but is just a grotesque mass of mixed-up cellular growth.

    Sadly, the process mimics pregnancy and I've known several women (and their mates) who went through the heartbreak of the process, looking forward to a baby and then . . . finding that.

    I suspect, since they're named, that that's what they're intended to be, and thinking about someone who's had this happen to them stumbling across it . . .

    I voted no other. I think they're fascinating, but I don't want one :D
