When you see the glove in the image above what’s the first thing you notice? Is it the strange color, or the odd texture? The questionable material, or the visually shoddy workmanship? Would you wear a pair of gloves like this?
My advice to you is that you shouldn’t, these are not work gloves they are a piece of art. But like LeVar Burton used to say on Reading Rainbow, “Don’t take my word for it.” Check out the Sruli Recht, the creator, description of this piece of art.
Sharkskin Glove – Thorns InFitted and unlined glove from basking shark skin, with the mic-rose thorns inside. Should you put your hand in, you will discover that the thorns, all directed to slant inward, will lock your hand in place in the manner of, ten thousand fishhooks. Should you attempt to remove it, the thousands of thorns will bite into the skin. You can put the gloves on, but to remove them would mean to cut them off. Gloves for life, or for one wear – the ultimate and final commitment.
