Spooky Scopophilia Chair Made From Hundreds of Glass Eyeballs

In the season of spook, it's easy to appreciate the oddity that is Australian artist Fiona Roberts' eye-catching Scopophilia chair — a fleshy piece of furniture made from hundreds of repurposed glass eyeballs!

Pin it button big

Taking a literal meaning of "the love of looking," the Scopophilia chair is upholstered in blood-red velvet, then stretched and pintucked to create the illusion of eyelids over heavyset eyes. If you can look past (no pun intended) the creepiness, the eyeballs actually seem like they'd make for a great massage chair!

Scopophilia was part of Roberts' 2011 collection of equally macabre sculptures featuring various body parts, including a heart, a severed hand and a wall of freakishly long eyelashes — all the makings of an awesome haunted house.
