Love It or Hate It? Harry Allen Bestow Vase/Candle Holder

A certified French film fanatic, I did a double take when I saw the Harry Allen Bestow Vase/Candle Holder ($95), because it conjures up Jean Cocteau's La Belle et La Bête, particularly the scene with the arms that outstretch from the wall, holding a candelabra. This vase/ candle holder is from the Harry Allen Reality series, which consists of objects whose form is "sampled" from existing objects. This particular product is a highly detailed cast of the designer's own hands. The series is certainly something new in home accessories, but this product is a little too eerie for me. What do you think?

it looks like someone punched through the wall and i don't like it, but it would be cool if there was a left and a right one, then you could turn them sideways, stick a dowl in there and have a creepy towel holder.

Very zombie. Where's the stylish disembodied head/skull motif for the walls with the bloodred candles to go with it?

It's freaking me out. Might have nightmares about that thing if it was in my house.

If you lived in the Adams' Family mansion, this would be appropriate. Or as an expensive Halloween decoration. Other than that, I'd have a very hard time being convinced to put this in my living space. I would never come out of my room for fear of having to look at it.

I think is very clever, but I have no idea if I'd ever actually put it in a house.

I don't hate it but it's creepy. It would freak me out at night - and probably cast and equally creapy shadow.

Way creepy, but reminds me of the hat hangars in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

I don't like creepy anymore. I don't want to feel like I'm trapped in a dungeon when I'm supposed to be in my happy place.
