Whatever you prefer to call it, but this is seriously one of the COOLEST ideas we've heard of lately.
No more are just presidents immortalized in one of the oldest materials on earth, but now your pets can be sculpted out of rocks!
Witty Wocks, a company started by Florida-based stay-at-home mom Adria Bernstein in 2009, takes your pet's picture and turns it into a work of art, using mainly rocks, glue and paint.
The creations start at $60, and take about a week to make, depending on the complexity of the request.
But wait, there's more!
Adria does more then pets too. She has created people, mascots, logos and is even working on a guitar for rocker Kenny Loggins!
Adria said of her new business venture:
"Rocks are gorgeous in their own natural state, but I wanted to do something more with them. I took it upon myself to glue them together, and realized I had something going on."
We think it's a little more than something. We can see this really taking off.
In fact, we're surprised it took this long for someone to build off of the Pet Rock, but we're happy to see Adria literally making pets out of rocks.
We love the detail in her work and think her creations look pretty darn identical to the pictures people have sent her.
Very cool products and we'd love to see Teddy's rock portrait some day soon.
