Abraham Palatnik's lucite creatures range from the exotic to the domesticated. Re-imagined with stylized silhouettes and graphic prints, Palatnik's small sculptures from the 60's have recently become highly-coveted once again. American designers, like Jonathan Adler, have rediscovered his work, sparking a new obsession. While figurines can be spotted from time to time in online shops like Etsy and 1st Dibs, they sell quickly and range anywhere from $250-$1,200, depending on the size, intricacy and popularity of the animal.
