water your garden using the symbols of death
Aqua Morte are a range of alternative sprinkler heads for your
tired old watering can. Ranging from the hand with severed
finger tips or the head with knife embedded, to the totally
sacrilegious (use your imagination). For indoor use the range is
simply reduced further in scale. Picture yourself
as you water
the herbaceous borders, gaily swinging your new Aqua Morte,
water sprinkling merrily over the plants from the guillotined
neck of Marie Antoinette.
Red water gun
LEDs near the head of the gun make the stream look red, although I think for the full effect the kids need to be playing at midnight [fridge duck, Dec 01 2005]
The sister/child idea to this one, as death brings forth new life.... [sophocles, Dec 09 2005]
||there must be some optical trick to make water appear red without having to mix a red colorant into it. [+]
||Well, that works in photographs, but what about in real life? Have some red diodes embedded in the head?
||Why not caress the chrysanthemums with the crescent of a scythe? "You're going to get it, you know..." Or is it more about the fertilizing properties of recycled life - as in, letting the Queen push up daisies?
||nice one[+]. You could also have the end be a little paddle-wheel that spins tibetan prayers & stuff too. Works either way.
||sophocles - that's a lovely idea - put it up. Giving you a
plus in anticipation. It could be called uqua vite, sister
idea of aqua morte.
