Xmas Declarations from Dorothy isn't just some alternative holiday ornament made for the sake of being cool; there's a purpose and a meaning behind the inspiration for this piece.

The artist collective known as Dorothy created Xmas Declarations after Ctrl.Alt.Shift requested them to make a piece that speaks to conflict in third world communities. It's a silver grenade ornament that can be easily hung on any tree. The symbol of the grenade is a way to remind others of the damage and the catastrophe that violence and war creates in poorer countries. As an effort to raise awareness on these issues, several ornaments were delivered to press and peers.

Xmas Declarations is a limited edition release available in various independent design stores around Europe. Every purchase will make a donation to Ctrl.Alt.Shift to support their ongoing campaign.
