Slightly disturbing & yet so cool


I have been looking at these candleholders for quite some time. They are called “Little Joseph” They are made by Maxim Velkovsky.  It is so really disturbing to use a kids head as the image of a candleholder. But it looks so cool & beautiful when the candle melts over the head-which is also really weird & kind of awful-but hey it´s a candleholder not a kid. I like that it changes a lot. Either it´s very clean or you can use different colors of candles & watch is change. Pure art.

Here artist Maxim Velkovsky made a bruised version of  Little Joseph. I guess the artist really think of “Little Joseph” as mistreated. Do you also find it creepy?
