I’ve never been a fly, so I don’t know what it’s like to be eaten by a carnivorous plant. Suffice it to say, I’m sure it’s rather unpleasant. Still, I’ve always been fascinated by these plants that can open and close to grab their lunch, and then digest them for nutrients. Now if you really, really like venus flytraps, then you might want to add this to your hat collection.
Created by Israel-based artist Maor Zabar as part of his Carnivorous Plants series, this headpiece looks just like a gigantic venus flytrap. The only difference is that it has a taste for human flesh instead of insects. Also, it costs $1700. For that price though, it is handcrafted using the finest materials like silk for its green exterior and red interior, and decorated with sparkly Swarovski crystals on the tips of its teeth. Yes, that’s the actual scientific term for those things on the outside of a venus fly trap.
Zabar’s venus flytrap hat is available for purchase over on the artist’s Etsy shop, where you can also find such creations as a hat that looks like McDonald’s french fries and ketchup, a slice of pizza, loaded with toppings, or a stack of delicious donuts.
