These Animal Boxes by Brooklyn-based designer Karl Zahn are small figural containers that represent power animals. But unlike typical totems, these animals are also functional sculptures—each with the ability to guard important small objects. On the shelf, it is sculpture. On the side table, it’s a totem. On the counter, it offers a hiding spot. A perfect stocking stuffer.
