Looks like a birthday balloon.
Nothing like black birthday balloons to set the mood for the party.

I guess a few skulls would mix things up a bit.

Just picked mine up from FedEx on my lunch break. They shipped flat, which was unexpectedly awesome. Will try to take some pics tonight when I get it out. Overall kinda impressed by how the world's worst app handled this.

Welp, it was packed flat, with loads of bubble wrap and sandwiched in a plastic sleeve between 4 layer of cardboard. But... they didn’t tape the print (in the sleeve) to the cardboard sandwich, so it kinda bounced around. I’d expect a fair amount of these have corner dings due to that (mine included). Oof.

On the plus side, it looks great in person.

I'm liking these more than I expected I would. I'm hoping the to grab a square flower/skull down the road as long as the prices don't go too crazy. I was lucky in the late 90's and basically got paid to watch him work everyday for a month or so on a Mr. Dob exhibit when I was in college. Everyone knew he was fantastic, especially compared to most of the exhibits we got. But it's amazing to see everything he's done since then. I've always wanted to own something of his and this may be the one.

That looks great, chrome!

Still didn’t open mine. To note here, the packaging looks unexpectedly solid. And I only paid 60 some CAD in taxes and fees. FedEx must have changed their ways because they only charged $10 for their brokerage services. Used be something insane depending on the value of the package. I was expecting a couple hundred at least.

It was delivered last Wednesday. They knocked at the door at 6:30 am, lol. Through my sleep I thought “I know what it is, but get the drymount out”. Picked it up around lunch time from the delivery person.

The drymounted up app is going to release a Murakami puzzle, if anyone is interested. Not my thing, so didn’t look much into it and don’t have any details except for this:

Forgot I still have the app too, lol.

Did some quick research and it looks like there was a similar one sold in Japan earlier this year (May):

https://www.buyfromjapan.jp/ecwidproduc ... weight=4.1

A quick search on eBay shows that one of those sold for $130 (or best offer) from Singapore and another for $203.55 from Japan.

Still not my thing. You are welcome.
