Crystal Camera Paperweights

Whether you're a wannabe Mapplethorpe or simply a big-time photo fanboy, these sculpted crystal model DSLRs are just the sort of bookends and/or paperweights deserving of your home or office.

The hand-crafted pieces are two-thirds the size of their real-deal counterparts and come carved in two replica versions: the Canon EOS 7D or Nikon D90. They're no rough-around-the-edges imitations, either; each is etched in detail, from the knobs and viewfinder to the dials and lens cap, so that looking through them feels as if you're peeking at a 3D schematic diagram of its design.
