Knock ‘Em Out.

This is awesome. Made by Debra Baxter, this amazing sculpture even has a super badass title: Crystal Brass Knuckles (I am going to realign your chakras motherf*****). In an interview with the blog My Love For You (one of my daily reads, by the way), Baxter said:

It is sort of a superhero tool/weapon. Most of my work is about engaging the body in some way. Calling the body to do something. My work embraces failure and fragility…though you won’t know that seeing this piece… They are made to fit a woman’s hand. There is a feminist/grrl power piece to this…and to all my work. Women engaging in their power and sexuality.

Brilliant. Oh, and her other work is pretty lovely, too.
