Nancy Fouts has a knack for creating art that is familiar and strange all at once. Her surrealist creations combine objects together in impossible ways. Some of these designs have been explored by artists on Instagram, while others feel new and inventive. Whether visual metaphors or just fun visual combinations, exploring Fouts’ work is a good way to exercise your creative mind. Via Colossal:

Twin cherries culminate into a pair of well-used dice.
A revolver covered in sharp spines.
