Elephant Dung Shoes

Yes, you're seeing right. These are neon, beaded, 10-inch heels with platforms made from elephant dung. Why, why, why might you ask? For the sake of art, of course!
High heels, made from elephant dung, are part of a new art exhibit at the Tate Britain. Created by UK artist INSA, the shoes will be included in a larger exhibition of work where several artists respond to Chris Ofili’s controversial The Holy Virgin Mary made from elephant dung.“INSA retraced the footsteps Chris Ofili made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Chris’s infamous paintings of the nineties,” explains a press release. The ten inch (25.4cm) shoes, entitled “Anything comes when it comes to (s)hoes…” are on display at the Bring The Noise exhibit at the Tate Britain from March 14th to March 21st, 2010.
