Turns Out You Can Buy A Life-sized 13 ft Giraffe Made Out Of Fiberglass To Hold Your Chandelier

Fancy something weird, yet luxurious? Got a spare few tens of thousands lying around? Well, these giant giraffe chandelier lamps might be just what you’re looking for! For the fans of unique and offbeat interiors, these giraffes with chandeliers in their mouths should really help to step up the home decor game.

Named “Giraffe in love,” these chandelier lamps are the creative love child of designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba and manufacturer Qeeboo. “Giraffe in love” represents irony and lightness: “the giraffe is in love, but she does not know it yet because her heart is far from her head and she lives love light-heartedly,” the product description reads.

These giraffe chandeliers will surely perk up any interior or garden

“It is a dreamy giraffe holding a classic Marie-Therese style chandelier,” retailer 1stdibs writes under the product description of the “Giraffe in love.” Not only do these fun giraffes function as a chandelier, but they can also bring a lot of quirkiness to any interior.

Retailing for $40K, the biggest version of the giraffe stands at 13 ft

Designed by an Italian artist, these giraffes come in three different sizes. The biggest one stands at 4 meters tall (around 13 ft), which is approximately the height of a young giraffe and comes in the animal’s full size. Then, there’s a chandelier of 173 cm (around 68 inches) that consists only of the giraffe’s neck and head. The XS version of the “Giraffe in love” is 100 cm (approximately 39 inches) tall.

However, there’s also a wall-mounted version of the chandelier

The chandeliers can be placed both outside as well as inside, as they are wind and water-resistant. Except for the XS version of the “Giraffe in love” that’s made from plastic, the other two are crafted using fiberglass.

That costs around $4,000

Not only do the giraffes look luxurious, but their price is also a lavish one as well. If you have a spare $40K, then affording the biggest “Giraffe in love” shouldn’t be a problem for you.

The smallest chandelier giraffe is made from plastic, unlike the others

The wall lamp that consists only of the giraffe’s neck and head stands at around $4,000 and can come in either black or white. However, the smallest one comes a variety of colors (black, white, grey, dusty rose, warm sand, and cool sand) and retails for around only $540.

And comes in 6 different colors

In an interviewwith Bored Panda, Dr. Rachel Brandoff, a Creative Art Therapist from Thomas Jefferson University, said that even though coloring books aren’t a substitute for art therapy, they have some similar benefits. “Benefits of coloring that we have identified, both anecdotally and through research, include stress relief, distraction, mental escape, focusing or mindful engagement, and for some people enjoyment and fun,” said Dr. Brandoff.

…taking his dogs out for a walk…

“While art therapy can foster these same benefits, it is more likely that a person engaging in art therapy has larger goals in mind, such as enhancing communication with self and/or others, processing trauma, facilitating decision-making, increasing self-awareness, developing coping skills, and understanding optimal and maladaptive functioning which might pertain to symptoms that tie to a life experience, relationship, loss or illness,” continued the art therapist.

…manning a boat…

“These types of goals really require the presence, guidance, and support of a trained therapist, whereas stress reduction and mental escapism are comfortably in the domain of something that one can engage in on their own at home.”

Brandoff tried explaining the difference using metaphors: “Consider the distinction between a) owning a brush and brushing your hair at home, and b) going to a salon and having your hair cut and styled by a professional. Both are good, and both serve similar goals, but if you have a need for a professional haircut, brushing your hair at home just won’t achieve that.”

“Another metaphor could be the distinction between a) engaging in stretching at home and b) going to a chiropractor. They may seem similar in approach and goal (e.g. optimal physical functioning), and while stretching at home can have an enormous benefit and be highly recommended, if you have a pinched nerve, just stretching on your own at home may not effectively address that issue,” explained the art therapist. “Another example: when I have a headache, I don’t immediately go to a neurologist. I might start with taking Ibuprofen, but there are some headaches that simple over-the-counter medication will not properly treat.”

…and taking a dip in a nice hot bubble bath

Brandoff went on to explain why adult coloring books became so popular in recent years: “I think that coloring books for adults have become so popular in the last decade because of a combination of marketing and nostalgia.”

Fans who already purchased the coloring book shared some pics

“One the marketing end, there are so many different kinds of coloring books out there: ones that are funny, clever, adorable, and beautiful. These play into our personalities, interests, and things that bring us joy,” continued the art therapist. “There are coloring books that play into trending phenomenon like mindfulness, and books that mimic famous works of fine art. There are books that cater to animal lovers, or unicorn lovers, and I even saw your article of the Jason Momoa coloring book.”

“My colleague has a book with elaborate and ornate profanity words, and a friend had a book dedicated to her fight with cancer. There seem to be books that play to all interests, which make good gifts and gimmicks, and like everything else in our culture, if it’s sold to us well, it’s likely to do well.”

“I think the other issue is nostalgia, which may be real or perceived. Some people loved coloring as children, or have memories of escaping into coloring pages, the clear definition of boundaries, and the freedom to maintain or to break those boundaries at will without consequences from the world or others. Coloring books allow for that freedom,” said Brandoff.

“For folks who didn’t love coloring as children, or don’t have fond memories of escaping to coloring books, it might feel like a lost opportunity that they now get to visit. There is a perceived nostalgia in connecting with activities that we think that children do or should enjoy. We get to be childlike or more spontaneous, whimsical, and in the moment when we color, which is contrary to what is often expected in adulting.” concluded Brandoff.

Fans of the actor loved the coloring book

Fed Up With All The Bad News, This Artist Illustrated The 50 Best Ones From 2019

Fed up with hearing about all the bad news, Italian artist Mauro Gatti decided to look on the bright side and started The Happy Broadcast – an “anxiety-free” Instagram account where he illustrates the best positive news. “We are often bombarded with fear-mongering and shocking headlines that make us feel that the world is falling apart,” says the artist. “However, while it’s important to report on problems and issues, I believe there is so much good in this world that it needs to be found and promoted just as widely.”

When he’s working on The Happy Broadcast, Mauro tries to pick the news that has an international appeal and includes themes like animal rights, climate change, and science. He believes that we need more positive news to realize that the world is getting better, even if it’s only little by little.

The artist believes that negative news is dominating the media because it’s more compelling than little improvements. “Bad things can happen quickly, but good things aren’t built in a day, and as they unfold, they’re out of sync with the news cycle,” says Mauro.

“As humans, we have this thing called “negative bias” that make us respond quicker to bad or dangerous situations,” says the artist. “Nowadays, this bias is getting in the way of our happiness and well-being, and even our productivity because most of the narrative surrounding us (print, online or mobile) is that the “world is ending”.”

Mauro believes we should find a balance between positive and negative news. “From politics to climate change and economy, negative and bad news surrounds us everywhere we go. A potential solution could be to limit the amount of bad news, basically slow down our personal news cycle, adding some positive news to our “news diet” to make sure that our outlook on the world is more optimistic,” says the artist. “Also, it’s very important to invest time to deal with misinformation and the reliability of news sources.”

Italian Artist Disse Creates Weird And Slightly NSFW Comics For Dark Humor Lovers (30 Pics)

Disse is an Italian artist who likes looking at the world from a different angle. He creates weird, twisted and absolutely hilarious comics every dark humor lover will get behind.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the artist said he started illustrating some borderline ideas running through his head at the beginning of the year. “I felt the urge to express a part of me which hadn’t seen the light yet,” said Disse.

The artist says he likes to discover how far he can push himself – his comics have no taboos. “I consider my works so surreal, I don’t think they can be taken seriously,” says Disse. “I don’t mean to be offensive to anyone, I only investigate the absurd.”

Disse says that during the first seven months of creating the comics, the feedback was huge. He says his plan for 2020 is to publish a comic once a week – and survive Instagram’s censorship. Let’s hope the artist succeeds!

Check out Disse’s comics in the gallery below!
