Stick 'Em Up!

These aren't really Yuck (in my humble estimation), but they could still be good for a laugh, just for the sheer bizarreness of guns made in lacy crochet:

I don't know the story behind these beauties.  Were they meant as an anti-gun statement?  Pro-gun?  Or were they made just for the heck of it?

Ok.  I googled it (like a nice, responsible blogger) and learned a little more about the guns.  These are part of a piece called "A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do", created in 1998 by Inger Carina, a Swedish artists (who adds, "For the record:  I don't like guns").

Anyway, what a fun piece!

  1. Isn't it just amazing what you can do with some cotton yarn and a bucket of starch?
