Lilitu by Tara McPherson
At first glance, we thought this was a picture of an ex-girlfriend, only to later realize that it was actually a sculpture of a succubus...easy mistake to make. Part of Kidrobot's newish line Kidrobot Black, this is release number 5 in the line. Forging pieces that feature primarily black materials with minimal secondary highlights, Kidrobot Black frees the artist of the complications derived from color. These limitations compel artists to surpass the norms of material and form, and push past the line between consumer product and art, as well as between object and design. You can learn more here, and prepare yourself to order. It is currently in the "coming soon" stage.
