Hot or Not: Barenjager ("Bear Hunter") Persian Rug

Hot or Not: Barenjager ("Bear Hunter") Persian Rug

Someone sent me the link to this rug, and to be honest, I'm still trying to process it. On one hand, I do like the fact that someone has taken a very traditional rug in a non-traditional direction. And I'm certainly not above a little kitsch. What do you think? Yay or nay?

This one-of-a-kind rug was made by artist Lisa Lefebvre, who started off with a vintage wool Persian rug and then created the bear-like face using wood, glass eyes, and a painted plastic mouthpiece. Can you see this unique piece on your floor or wall?
