Abraham Palatnik's Lucite Zoo

I recently discovered Brazilian artist Abraham Palatnik's lucite animals – and I'm hooked. Creatures ranging from the exotic to the domesticated are re-imagined with stylized silhouettes and mesmerizing prints in Palatnik's coveted '60s-era collection. His popularity with American designers like Jonathan Adler has sparked a renewed obsession among mod-loving design enthusiasts. While random figurines can be spotted in online vintage shops like Etsy and 1st Dibs, they sell quickly and range anywhere from $100-$1,200, depending on the size and the intricacy of the subject. Click through the gallery to decide which op-art animal you'll be on the hunt for!
