Pippa Middleton Crumpet Mosaic!

Ray Mears Extreme Housewifery: The Pippa Middleton Crumpet Mosaic!.

Crumpet

Crumpet!

Do you like crumpet? Do you like Pippa Middleton? Then you’ll love The Pippa Middleton Crumpet Mosaic!

Extreme Housewifery takes an artistic turn, as 15,000 crumpets are laid out across Warrington’s Parr Hall to immortalise Ms Middleton’s image in breakfast-based art!

Produced as a publicity stunt for Beefeater Grill’s new breakfast menu in 2011, it took a full day to spread jam, marmite and butter onto the crumpets and place them out across the hall.

Badass prosthetics…

Badass prosthetics!
From DarkChildOneFalseLeg

From the sublime, to the ridiculous, these replacement limbs take Functional Art to a new level.

With metals, ceramics, crystal and realistic skin, a lot of real work has gone into making these essential items into stunning works of art!

I’m not sure what there is to say, apart from WOW!

EDIT: Managed to track down the origin of these fantastic pieces.
Designed by Sophie de Oliveira Barata from the Alternative Limb Project, whose works include the Crystallized Leg made for Viktoria Modesta playing the Ice Queen at the London 2012 Paralympic Closing ceremony.

Rainbow Mountains In China

Rainbow Mountains In Chinas Danxia Landform Geological Park Are Very, Very Real PHOTOS.

Rainbow mountains! No, really!

A friend who studied geology in Wales always remarked that he was becoming an expert in Grey Rocks. (This was before Ms James’s novel, or I’m sure he would have made some comparative pun.)
China, on the other hand, seems to have a wider selection of colours to choose from!

The Danxia Landform Geological Park is formed from 24 million year old sandstone, and buckled by tectonic forces, giving rise to a startling range of multicoloured mountains!

Wow. Just Wow! 🙂
