Fully Articulated Solid Gold Skeleton

13 Apr

So if you have a spare $150,000 – $250,000 lying about then this Sotheby’s auction listing might be for you. This is only 11cm long but already day dreaming about a life-sized solid gold one…

Fully articulated human skeleton in a velvet-lined coffin chased around on each side with three panels showing the course of life, one end with attributes of the arts, the other with attributes of war, the removable cover with the journey in the footsteps of the Angel of Death, surrounded by the faces of infants alternately laughing and crying.

Recordable Coffin

15 Nov

I can only imagine how bloody annoying this would get – another for the so shit it is actually amazing category. Perfect Secret Santa territory.

The BURY THE HABIT Recordable Coffin has arrived to help you and your friends and loved ones finally put to rest all your annoying bad habits, addictions or things that you or they do that drive people crazy. Simply press the button and record up to 4 personal messages into the coffin. Maybe it’s to quit smoking or stop texting while driving. Then, every time the lid is lifted, the messages are played back as motivating reminders to stay the course and start living life unburdened by the things that are keeping you all from being shiny happy people.

My mum has already asked me what I am doing for Christmas this year, and only just stopped short of asking what I wanted to eat. Anyway it must be that time of year as shortly after followed a rash of 2010 calendar reveals online.

One of the most random was this coffin themed regular. It used to feature the WAGS of coffin makers Cofani Funebri but since taking off in popularity they have buried that idea and decided to use models instead. See if you can spot the goth Worzel Gummage body double (in the picture above)…
