Not sure quite how I feel, but it may lead to some interesting speculation; this ("Bluebeard's Wife") was made by Arman in 1969:

http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/arma...ife-t03380

From the catalogue:

"The Teflon form is filled with an unknown number of shaving brushes. The brushes, which vary in colour and design, were bought in ‘job lots' from Canal Street market in New York City, the source of many of Arman's materials when working in New York."

Probably not something that I would want to own, but I can appreciate the imagination, creativity, and execution of the piece. Also, I was wondering where all those shaving brushes went.

They are still where they are. The piece is in the Tate.

Eh, I'm seeing too much boar in there to really feel too bad about the loss of all those brushes Tongue
