I don’t know what it is, but there is something likeable about this metal-worked industrial looking arachnid. Maybe it’s the uniqueness of it, maybe it’s because I always think I need a paperweight (even though no one does), or maybe it’s the unbelievably reasonable $20 price tag.
This piece of eight legged art is exactly what it looks like, a 4” x 3” rock, with a small lightbulb wrapped in black wire legs perched on top of it.
Is it a paperweight? Is it a pet? Where will I put it? I’d put it on your work desk just to goad people into asking, “What the hell is that?” to which you nonchalantly reply “it’s my rock spider” – nothing more, nothing less.
