If guns and gold make you horny you might have something in common with artist Peter Gronquist. His new show entitled "The Evolution Will Be Fabulous" is another bad ass offering by Gallery 1988. I would love to see these in person as the detail looks incredible. Living in Texas I'm often looking at some sort of wall trophy in the form of guns or deer heads (*sigh) but I definitely prefer these golden death deer. The machine gun skeleton horns are so freaking awesome. Also I'm pretty tempted to make my own jackalope with giant gold unicorn horn for my wall. On a side note, how awful would it be to get blown up by a gold Hello Kitty grenade? It's like a double whammy, not only would you die but it would be at the hands of Hello Kitty.
