Channeling one's inner MacGyver has never been easier thanks to Toni Spyra. An artist living and working in Vienna, Austria, he creates disguised weapons out of everyday objects. For instance, a typical wooden hanger has been tweaked with a saw blade while a canister of pepper spray has had a perfume applicator attached to it. Of course, Toni Spyra's creations are works of art, not mass-produced products for the everyday consumer.

On a deeper level, Toni Spyra's artworks challenge the mind. As Beautiful Decay acutely observes, "These threatening works immediately announce their inherent danger and allow the viewer to reflect on safety and self protection in our culture." People should always be on the alert for dangers are never so obvious.
