There's an art to protecting your expensive Apple iPhone 4, and Japan's Strapya World are old masters at the game. You'd better believe Da Vinci, Picasso, Klimt, and Van Gogh would want to press one of these miniature masterpieces to their ear... oops, sorry Vincent.
Skins, sleeves and covers for Apple's popular iPhone 4 are a dime a dozen but the original inspirations for these Art Gallery iPhone 4 Covers sell for multi-millions, if & when they sell at all.
You'll pay just 1,980 yen (around $25.40) each, however, for a custom iPhone 4 skin featuring one of the world's greatest works of painted art.
From Leonardo Da Vinci's exquisitely enigmatic Mona Lisa, to 4 examples of the unsettling yet undeniable genius of Vincent Van Gogh, to the evocative beauty of legendary 20th century artists Gustav Klimt (The Kiss, 1907-08) and Pablo Picasso (The Dream, 1932, at left), the giants of the art world have impressed generations with their mastery of brush, oil and palette.
These artistic iPhone 4 covers do a good job of capturing the gorgeous interplay of layered brushstrokes and reflecting them back with what Strapya describes as a slight “3-D appearance like a real oil painting.”
All 7 covers are made of tough polycarbonate plastic to protect your iPhone 4 from dirt, dust, and scratching. Protective stickers for the front and back side are included, along with a small but effective wiping cloth.
