A German artist who turns dried cow manure into wall clocks and small sculptures wants to expand his repertory to include cow dung wrist watches.
"Artists are always looking for new materials and I was struck by the similarities in the consistency of the manure to my paints," said Bernd Eilts,
43. "I used sheep droppings at first but they were too small so I switched to cow dung."
Eilts said the idea came to him as he walked through a mound-filled field 10 years ago. He lets the cowpats dry out over a few weeks before sculpting,
painting or lacquering them.
Now I've seen it all! Wouldn't these things smell horrible?
