With artwork, the general rule of thumb is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you are looking for some really weird Christmas art, these fungus drawings may be just the thing.

Designed by the J. Craig Venter institute, these festive holiday pictures were created entirely out of various forms of bacteria and fungus. They even come in Petri dishes as though they are part of some sick Christmas experiment where a mad scientist has decided to infect everyone with holiday spirit. There is an adorable snowman, a beautiful tree all decorated with ornaments and another tree covered in fuzzy snow.

While weird Christmas art may be fun for the holidays, make sure you dispose of this bio-hazardous decor appropriately afterwards. Stats for Festively Arranged Bacteria Trending: Older & Chilly
