Normally, an animal-skin rug would conjure visions of some nobility, freshly returned from safari, puffing on a pipe in his library and surrounded by the dead-eyed stares of dozens of endangered, exotic animals. This imaginative project turns that tired old stereotype on its head through colorful, cruelty-free, easily-accessible materials. It's the animal-skin rug for the layman, if you will.
So far this looks to be a one-off project by the artist, done solely to please a whim. Although I must admit some regret that I cannot get my own piñata-skin rug through Etsy, I can definitely approve of following one's own flight of fancy, salability be damned.
Apropos, the last piñata I had the pleasure of enjoying was at a friend's baby shower a little over a year ago. It was a "grown-up" piñata, meaning that in addition to delicious candies, it was laden with lotto tickets, novelty lighters, and airline-sized booze bottles! That's a free tip from me for any of you who are having parties.
