A glowing neon Budweiser sign helps set a festive mood in your man cave. Unless you're going for more of a goth-like feeling of despair and hopelessness. In that case you'll totally want Eric Franklin's glowing skeleton sculpture hanging over your bar.

Representing over 1,000 hours of labor, Eric had to ensure that every single seam in his piece—entitled Embodiment—was thoroughly sealed so that nothing was able to get in or out once it was filled. Because if even one tiny foreign molecule was able to get inside, the ionized krypton gas that gives this sculpture its eery glow would eventually stop illuminating. Which would, you know, be about 1,000 hours worth of bummer. [Eric Franklin via Colossal]
