Save the Planet, STOP GLOBAL WARMING


"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."










Earth HAS dominion OVER man.

WE HAVE ONE PLANET, JUST ONE !
SAVE THE PLANET

Art Work Made out of Brown Packaging Parcel Tape !!


I have recently stumbled upon some great unconventional paintings at the Telegraph newspaper site. At first, I thought they were some computer generated images, but, after a closer look, I discovered the interesting part in the way they were made.

Artist Mark Khaisman, originally from Ukraine but working in Philadelphia, used nothing but 100-meter rolls of regular brown packaging tape. The parcel tape was used as a wide brush. Strips were layered over each other on top of clear Plexiglas sheets to create different levels of shades. The final work is placed in front of a light source to give the image its final shape.

Using this ingenious and original method, Mark Khaisman created stills of some of his favorite movie scenes as well as some other great images.
Make sure you check out his website.

Spellbound (1945), Ingrid Bergma

Pick Up On South Street (1953)

A Buddha Statue Made Out of Bugs in a Tribute to Their Souls !!!

Do souls really exist?
Is the soul the collective effect of neurons firing in the brain? Is the soul really some supernatural entity that is separate from the vessel it occupies?

Well, an 89-year-old man by the name of Namura Yoneiji from Gumma prefecture, Japan believes that not only souls do exist, but also every living creature has one.
In a tribute to the souls of all the bugs that died, Yoneiji created a Buddha status made out of dead bugs, mostly beetles. Yoneiji spent 6 years and some 20,000 dead bugs in creating the great and symbolic work of art.

In his words as read on inhabitat.com, Yoneiji says “For children in the years immediately after World War II, Japan was poor and there was little entertainment available, aside from catching bugs. However, every bug would eventually die after being caught. By making a statue of a Buddha from their dead bodies, perhaps their souls can rest in peace.”

very interesting, don't you think?








You gotta love the Japanese.

Cute Talented Mice Pose with Musical Instruments

A while back I stumbled upon the following photos of at the Sun newspaper some awesomely talented mice: Moppy and Witje . They were trained to hold miniature musical instruments in different poses. Their owner, Ellen van Deelen from Roosendaal, Holland, used treats to train her cute mice and took some incredibly cute photos.

Check out her album here.

Enjoy :D
