Christmas tree wall tattoo with toys attached


Over 200 small toys and Christmas decorations form a 145 cm high and 105 cm wide Christmas tree, which is attached to the wall with a removable tattoo.
The photo with shadow casting makes the tree appear wonderfully three-dimensional – as if you had brought all the little things to the wall piece by piece… Instead the designer of MYK, Myra von Busekist, who developed the tattoo from a work of art, did it. The lovingly collected little things are stylishly arranged into a fir tree shape. Almost like in a hidden object picture you can drift your eyes for a long time and discover little stories, funny details or childhood memories. Christmas Wall Tattoo, £51.27, from
