What it is:

Two-foot tall hand-sculpted ceramic sculptures of people with animal heads - Lizards, Rams, Crickets, Birds and more... usually on their phones, but there's also a cricket surfing the net for porn, and a Monkey without pants so fair warning if you bring kids.

Why it matters:
We see ourselves in animals more than other people:  A dog dying in a movie is always worse (Has anyone seen "I Am Legend'? I thought that was supposed to be a zombie movie, not the SADDEST THING EVER).

Anyway, like it or not, you'll see yourself, or that dude on the train, clearer than in a mirror.
