Designer Lee Jinyoung of i-Clue Design has created a delightful Skull Tea Infuser, a silicone tea infuser in the shape of a human skull. As Jinyoung explains, the infuser has its roots in a Buddhist tale:
The story of Buddhist Master Wonhyo drinking water from a skull was the motive for the design of the skull tea infuser. Wonhyo felt extremely thirsty one night, and drank from a human skull full of brackish water. The truth that he had drunk water from a skull remained unchanged after he learned the truth about the water the next morning; therefore, he realized the truth that everything is created by one’s own mind. This product reflects the desire to feel Wonhyo’s significant meaning of life and have fun while taking a short time to drink tea in daily life.
