Beasts Collection by Burberry

Hi friends! It's Friday already! It seems like time is flying by so fast, half of the year has gone by. Thank you for visiting my blog and encouraging me with your comments. Without you all it would have not been possible to have come this far. So, thank you! Moving on to the post. I stumbled across Beasts Collection by Burberry while browsing the internet and I have to say it's pretty rad! 

Beasts is the newest bag collection by Burberry that features mythical creatures in an eclectic mix of colors, textures and embellishments. The collection is inspired by heraldic animals and birds found in medieval English manuscripts. You'll find different variety of styles in the collection from crossbody, to shoulder bag, wallet to coin purse that look like animals or has stitched animal motif detail. They don't come cheap but will certainly make heads turn with their unique designs.

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll see you on Monday :)

Each piece is thrown and fired by the artist herself, and finished with a variety of ceramic glazes for long lasting durability.

Hand-Painted Animals Added Into Vintage Photographs by Anja Wülfing

I love old pictures! They have a story and a timeless charm. So naturally I was drawn towards the wonderful work of a German artist Anja Wülfing. She hand-paints forest animals and birds over vintage photographs and prints creating a unique piece of art. Her artwork generally has either the large animals added into a group of people in the background or merged with the subjects in the picture. The heads' of the people in the picture replaced with the head of an owl, a fox, a pig or lion creating naturalistic hybrid beings.

You can see more of her work on Behance and Instagram.
