Horrors of Design: Macabre snow globes leave you both shaken and stirred

Everyone likes a cheery snow globe to brighten their day, right? Well, you’ll need a martini after you see this gallery of very special snow globes by artists Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz, experts at using a naïve medium to depict scenes of horror and existential winter.

What? A mob hit where there should be smiling snow men and happy horse-drawn sleighs? The ghoulish sensibility of this artwork makes us feel both amused and appalled at the same time.

If you like the above example, be sure to take a gander at the ghastly gallery below for even more outlandish storytelling under glass. Or shell out $750 to take one of these conversation pieces home, if you dare. It might go well with your toilet made of meat and duck lamp.
