Chimera

Have a weird Christmas with a bird-legged ornament

For a creepy Christmas, Conceptual artist Peter Eudenbach sculpted 100 of these pieces called "Chimera," a sort of traditional Christmas ornament-with-legs. Eudenbach formed the globe itself from turquoise glass, attaching a set of cast pewter bird feet; the decoration is the perfect accessory for a darker holiday.

Released through Artware and to be available online next month, each piece sells for $150, measures about 4" tall and is signed and numbered by the artist.

Eudenbach is an assistant professor of sculpture at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. His installations have appeared around the world and are detailed on his personal site .
