Slightly Creepy, Super Cool

I've been noticing these things on various blogs and tv shows for a while now, and everytime I see them I'm amazed out how beautiful they are. I still can't figure out exactly what they are. Inspired by Dali, and MC Escher, their creator Tom Beshara came up with them as a way to capture the likeness and spirit of his daughters. He calls his optical illusion, tripped-out, silhouette thing-a-ma-jigs "Pirolettes" and you can get one done of you or your baby for around $150.

They totally remind me of the gorgeous walnut stools designed by Charles and Ray Eames back in the day, right?!
