Luxurious cigarette holders were once a must-have accessory for chic women like Rita Hayworth or Audrey Hepburn. Falling right in line with this opulent fashion trend, New York-based artist Dilan Walpola has created this extravagant and slightly eerie spinal cord cigarette holder in 24K-plated cast brass available on Etsy for $500.

Dilan Walpola designs more than smoking accessories. His hand-sculpted pieces are edgy, primal and even a bit dangerous; however, none exude the confidence and taboo allure of the spinal cord cigarette holder.
