uck. There is just something so...strange about them. For me, I don't think it is the fact that they are real, but just the pose of them is all wrong.

I actually feel ill after seeing these. One can only wonder what the person who would have this in their home or shop wish for this to convey about them?

Ugh, I hate them. They actually make me a little nauseous. Particularly because they are real. Hmf.

Eek. I think if I was up in the middle of the night and glanced at them I'd jump out of my skin...

How disgusting.
As are real zebra rugs.

Horrific. I'm a horse owner. I don't believe I have seen much worse than this.

It all depends on whether or not these were legally culled to control population growth. i personally like these as an object. As long as I could have legal documentation that they were culled. These don't particularly look old, so i'd need documentation. If a zebra was culled I don't understand why they would be so short.

so, would they be a good touch if the limb was kept a little longer?

alis said...

^^as long as they're an actual limb, no.

Bad touch! Sad touch! How awful. This looks like something Cruella Deville would use to furnish her lair.
