But I was fighting all the time to be able to rest in what was mine, to enjoy the warmest and best feeling of the moment, and not all the time to be thinking, Oh, God, this isn’t enough. Many of my dreams were never to be fulfilled, but I had found what I had never dreamed of: reality can be magnificent even when life is not.

These lacy creatures are part of a strange and beguiling ongoing series by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos, who has been wrapping ceramic animal sculptures in five-needle lace, handmade cotton crochet.

Each of the pieces “are ambiguously imprisoned/protected by a second-skin in crochet-work,” says Vasconcelos.

The sculptures themselves are the work of renown 19th century Portuguese artist Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905).

We go on a killing spree trying to find Elvis. It’s very dreamy, lovers with guns. Very Americana-feeling. I love that shit.
