Incredible sand sculptures

After seeing what artists can do with snow and ice, it’s time to see how they handle sand.

I remember when I was just a little kid and traveled with my folks to the seaside, I used to make sand sculptures too…but nothing like the ones presented at the Harrison Hot Springs. Also known as the Sand Sculpture Capital of the World, Harrison is the place where artists from across the globe gather to measure their skills and create some of the most impressive works of art I’ve ever seen. I’ll let the photos convince you of their talent.

Unusual collection of furniture

These are definitely some of the weirdest pieces of furniture I’ve ever seen.

Sure, many of these are very original artistic pieces, but still…how many of you would like to have to penis-shaped armchairs in your living-rooms. Still, as I said, they are to be admired for their originality.

Lego-made famous buildings

These little things can turn into impressive looking things.

Many might think that Lego bricks are only toys, but photos like these prove that in the hands of a talented person they can turn into true artwork.

Beer-can heaven

Is this where all the beer-cans go when they’re emptied?

No this is just the apartment of a man that’s in-love with beer and hates to clean up. As you can see by looking at this guy, drinking is his passion and he has all those beer-cans to prove it. Drunks makes me sick, but filthy, lazy ones…there’s not yet a word to express what I feel for them.

The Fire Dancers

That’s not actually what they are called but that’s what they looked like to me so that’s what I named them.

We haven’t really been able to find anything on these guys, where they’re from, or whether they do this as part of a show or something like that, so if you know anything don’t hesitate to let us know.

Whoever they are, I think what they’re doing is beautiful and the photographer deserves just as much praise!

UFO house for sale

Ever wanted to live in a flying saucer? Now you can!

If you have at least $100.000 that is, that’s the starting price for this odd looking UFO-shaped house. It is for sale on Ebay so look it up if you can afford it. It’s based in Chattanooga, Tennessee and it was built by the late Curtis W. King because he liked to build unusual things.

The current owner, only had it for four months and he didn’t comment on why he wanted to sell it, but it might have something to do with the interior design options, the side walls are very very short and the ceiling, as you can imagine, is very curved. I wouldn’t want to live there, even though it’s equipped with everything a normal home needs. But then again I’m not that fond of UFOs.

Real-life Simpsons’ house

I can’t believe I haven’t heard about this before, it’s been around for 10 years!

I stumbled across these photos and they looked strangely familiar, but I couldn’t tell where I had seen that house before. After some research I found out Fox and Pepsi built this house for a contest that a woman named Barbara H. won. The house is located in Nevada and it is an exact replica of The Simpsons house. How cool is that!

One of a kind wooden car

Vasily Lazarenko wanted to create something extraordinary when he first started tinkering with car parts and many think he succeeded.

In his home town of Chernovtsny, Ukraine, Vasily took a year and a half to put together a unique vehicle out of a convertable and a luxurious saloon and then covered it all in oak. He says he will consider selling it if the buyer offers him enough to get his next wacky project going.

Used tire art

Some people can any type of junk and make something beautiful out of it.

Such is the case here, where some artists had the brilliant idea of using used car tires to create wonderful works of art. I’m really impressed with that black armor, but the others don’t look half bad either. This should be a lesson to all of us, just because something looks used doesn’t make it useless.

The Nautilus House

The Nautilus House is one of the most beautiful achievements of Senosiain Arquitectos, a famous home designing company. Although it might seem very unusual, this shell shaped house is said to be quite comfortable, making you feel like a caterpilar (in a good way) in this very…spiral environment.

Star Wars origami

Star Wars isn’t exactly one of my favorite films of all times, so I can’t say I’m really impressed by all these little paper foldings. I am however surprised to see people have enough time on their hands to actually sit down and start folding pieces of paper into Star-Wars memorabilia...Get a job!

Harbin Snow Sculpture Festival

I have to be honest and start by saying I’m a huge fan of winter and all that it implies, snow, ice, cold weather, the whole enchilada, so I guess I was a little subjective in picking this piece over others. But even you sun worshipers have to admit that these snow sculptures, especially the castles are simply amazing.

These were all sculpted in blocks of snow and ice, during the Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival, in China by the most talented sculptures in the world. The festival dates back to 1963 and is one of the four largest ice and snow festivals, along with along with Japan’s Sapporo Snow Festival, Canada’s Quebec City Winter Carnival, and Norway’s Ski Festival.

Chuckie’s friends

Now these are some dolls I wouldn’t recommend any parent to buy for his kids, unless they want them to become really twisted human beings. Come to think of it some of these puppets are even spookier than old Chucky, which in my opinion wasn’t really all that scary. These “toys” on the other hand are much more spookier, darker…scarier!

I wouldn’t be surprised if the person behind these abominations is also behind the disturbing art I posted about not long ago. Anyway the guy clearly has issues!

Beautiful Lenticular Clouds

These unusual clouds are called lenticular clouds because of their lens-like shape and they tend to form at high altitudes, normally aligned at right-angles to the wind direction.

They have often been mistaken for UFOs in the past, due to their odd shape, but they are becoming more common these days. They are indeed another of mother nature’s wonders, truly a sight to behold!

KaraTEA

As you all know, Chinese are very serious when it comes to their historical legacy, their centuries old customs and traditions, so it comes as no surprise that even though it’s rapidly becoming one of the most industrialized nations in the world they still honor their forefathers by performing ancient ceremonies.

Avery good example is this Cin dynasty traditional ceremony, performed in the city of Hangzhou. Progress is great but history is fascinating.
