Chris Eckert's Armageddon Art is Surprisingly Functional

Artist Chris Eckert has designed two explosive fashion statements that are bound to both shock and intrigue you. The Armageddon Cap is a grenade-shaped hat designed to instantly turn you into a human hand grenade. The accompanying Armageddon Handbag is equally as violent and is designed to look like a bomb.

Eckert was inspired to create the Armageddon Cap after he was given a haiku from recording artist pc muñoz, who told him to create a work of art as a response. The haiku was all about shopping for a hat for the end of the world, which naturally led to the creation of the Armageddon Cap, and later the Armageddon Handbag.

Both the cap and handbag can be seen as a reflection of the violent times we live in. Chris Eckert's Armageddon handbag is especially cool as I could actually see women flocking to something as unique and bizarre as this.
