Basquiat, Dali, and Grace Jones for your Christmas Tree

Basquiat, Dali, and Grace Jones Christmas ornments

 

I was in Pittsburgh recently, and made a visit to the Andy Warhol Museum, which I enjoyed very much. After going through the exhibits, I browsed the gift shop, and happened upon these ornaments featuring the likenesses of (from left): Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dali, Grace Jones wearing a Philip Treacy-designed bowler hat made with Swarovski crystals, and another Grace Jones ornament at far right (in duplicate). I didn’t look closely at the tags on them in the store, but it appears they are all designed and manufactured by Cody Foster & Co.

I regret that I didn’t buy any, but now that I know how to find them online, perhaps I’ll reconsider. I’ve seen a lot of different products in recent years featuring Basquiat and Dali (usually joined by Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh), but a Grace Jones Christmas ornament caught me by surprise – love it!
