Dutch artist, Marielle Leenders, has come up with a unique concept for packaging and marketing flower bulbs. The bulbs are dipped in a thin layer of wax to seal and preserve them, and when the bulbs are planted the roots grow through the wax.

Despite the innocuous intent, I can't help feeling that there's something rather uncanny about the images of the embalmed roots, something that makes me think of being buried alive.
