Chinese product designer Arthur Xin has created the intriguing design for this set of sculptural spice shakers that draw inspiration from the practice of Spanish bullfighting.

These sculptural vessels come in a three-piece set and are meant to hold salt, pepper and crushed cayenne powder. The salt and pepper shakers are colored a shiny chrome and are shaped to resemble the horns of a charging bull. The bottom tin, intended for cayenne pepper, has been colored a vibrant red that brings to mind the flapping red cape of a bullfighting Spanish matador.

A magnet keeps the two horns into place when not in use, and the red bottom tin acts as a perfectly paired base for display. The entire shaker package creates and elegant piece of home decor great for display in the kitchen or dining room of a modern home.
