Object Proverbs

I never imagined I could love threaded words and shadowed people so much. The collection of "object proverbs" by Lasanta are wonderful. The images and actions re-create a popular Catalan saying. Clever right? I wonder what kind of everyday sayings we could imagine in form?

Just the ideas to get us started for the week...

I LOVE the 'bla bla bla'! Cute!

Tina said...

these are so cool, LOVE the threaded words with red ribbons tied into little bows, teams up with the white words so well, would look equally as good with some thing like "love love love" or "happy happy happy"...

heidi said...

that just says it all. (for me) :-)

cindy : quaint said...

in english, bla bla bla = i love it!

I love the word cutouts! - I've been thinking about doing something like that against my walla for xmas, but my house is already soooo decorated up ... I also loved the foodprints on her site - amazing! Now I want to print with cabbage, and broccoli, and brussel sprouts!

I would love to have a shadow of my own alter ego! How cool would that be?!!
Super cool!

Those shadow figures are remarkably friendly looking. I wouldn't have necessarily expected them to be ...

Blair said...

Very clever! I especially loving the words. What fun decor that would be for an office. Not sure if it sends the right message but fun none the less! :)

Julia said...

Everything we might say or think about saying is instantly glorified and made wise by these cut outs! I think I would have "crap!" and "oh shoot!" all over my cubicle :)

Victoria said...

Another creative home run. Fantastic!
