Beauty is in the eye of the beholder--so it's not completely impossible that someone would find these elephant dung heels beautiful. London designer INSA made them to coordinate with artist Chris Ofili's return to the art world (you remember him from his dung-enhanced painting of the Virgin Mary that then-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani attempted to ban), getting the dung from the very same group of elephants that Ofili used.

The ten-inch heels were coated with resin, beaded, and painted for an exhibition at at TATE Britain.
