Grass Covered Mouse is Always Greener
November 11th, 2009
Created by Japanese artist Hanaoka, the Siva mouse is part of a series of grass-covered objects he’s produced for the world to enjoy. This mouse is just one of many grassy items that Hanaoka has created over the years, and while the grassy mouse it’s not currently for sale, there are a variety of other grass-covered stuffs over at his website. As an added bonus, 50% of the proceeds from his product sales go to a non-profit group called Shibafu Spirit, which helps bring live greenery to Osaka’s schoolyards.
While I’m not sure about the practicality of this thing, I really do appreciate the concept of bringing a bit of nature to our drab, fluorescent-lit cube farms now and again. Also, I don’t know if it’s a good idea to pour water on your mouse either.
