Somehow, the holiday season is upon us again, and while we would normally eschew seasonal posts until at least Thanksgiving, we have to make an exception for our friends at Gallery1988. You see, the latest show at the pop culture-obsessed L.A. gallery is a solo outing for sculptor Blain Hefner, who has created a series of incredible Christmas tree toppers, inspired by some of our favorite movies (holiday-themed and otherwise). The show opened last Friday and every damn one of them has already sold out, but don't worry; we've got images of some of our favorites, and you can check out the rest over at G1988's site.
