Here’s further proof that devilduck, our fearless leader, is an awesome individual. Not only is he a friend to frogs, he takes it upon himself to express his regrets when they misbehave and start frightening livestock and devouring clothing.
Redditor buildingsonfire shared this photo of their father’s awesome collection of 1,785 bowling balls arranged in a towering pyramid. Their parents were inspired to begin collecting the balls back in 2001 after seeing a picture of a different bowling ball pyramid. Most of the bowling balls in their collection were donated, some of them are retired balls from bowling alleys or military surplus (presumably from alleys located on military bases).
The balls are not currently fixed in place, but are stacked on a homemade concrete base with a lip made to perfectly fit the lowest level of the pyramid.
We love it when awesomely huge things are put into relatable perspective, but every once in a while the results are also very unexpected.
Case in point: We all know Godzilla is incredibly tall, but the original Godzilla from the 1954 film was only 50 meters (164 feet) tall. Japanese Twitter user Shinobu Yoshino recently created this graphic which places a scale version of the first Godzilla in modern-day Tokyo. Today the city’s numerous buildings are so tall themselves that Godzilla looks positively puny in comparison.
Shhh, no one tell Godzilla he’s short. We don’t want to hurt his feelings.
This awesome and elaborate wood sculpture, entitled A Matter of Time, is the work of artist Paul Baliker. Paul spent six months creating this piece which, “presents itself like a three-dimensional mandala exhibiting the diverse species of life on Earth.” All sorts of animals, including different birds, fish, a monkey, giraffe, and a rhino appear to be bursting forth from the natural texture of the wood, which is also the wildly streaming hair of the central human figure, who gently holds the world in the palm of his hand.
Like many of his other meticulously crafted pieces, A Matter of Time draws a connection between man and nature. The artist says, “A passion for nature has inspired me to create a body of work that is environmental in pith. I endeavor to capture a moment in wood or bronze that expresses potential for a symbiotic relationship with nature.”
Canadian artist Jobe Brown creates awesome modular 3D origami sculptures of pop-culture characters from a variety of different movies, tv shows, and video games. His paper Golden Snitch particularly fun and maybe a little easier to catch than the ‘real’ thing.
This art is for the birds! A street artist by the name of Combo created an awesome open-air art exhibition specifically for pigeons. Not only are the pieces pigeon-sized and placed at the birds’ eye level, they’re each easily recognizable pieces of well-known art that have been altered to reflect a pigeon-centric world. The pigeon version of American Gothic is probably our favourite.
