Description
“Give the affectionate risk-taker in your life the rare opportunity to cuddle up to this ferocious fertility totem. Her pregnancy the product of cannibalistic digestion, this airplane hosts an array of bodily functions to contemplate from hospital bed to inflight tray table to hospital bed again. Edition of 4.”

Signed, unnumbered, varied edition.

The myth goes that after an Anthro Plane (Sexy Anthropomorphized Air Plane) swallows her enemy whole, the unfortunate soul will be slowly digested in the planes stomach. Gestation is followed with the fusing of the victims broken down innards/bones and PDNA (Plane DNA). After 3 months a new baby plane is born! This process only occurs a few times in a planes life, it is very dangerous and stressful for a plane to feud all the time and destroy her enemies with such an epic technique. Anthro Planes are very peaceful creatures and typically prefer to deal with conflicts using de escalation techniques. They are fiercely loyal and that is sometimes what gets them into situations where they have no choice, but to devour… – Maya Ben David
