Classical sculptures dressed as hipsters look contemporary and totally badass

Email I have just discovered a whole new dimension to classical sculpture. If you dress the sculptures as hipsters it gives them an awesome new look. They become contemporary and totally badass. Needless to say, they look a lot more human. They look like people who we can picture in our lives. Photos by photographer Léo Caillard and photo retoucher Alexis Persani. Leave your comment!

20 Modern Remakes Of Famous Paintings You’re probably familiar with a lot of these famous Western art masterpieces, but probably not like this! It started when booooom.com partnered with Adobe to create the Remake project, which asked art students to recreate classic paintings into something else using photography. Here’s our favourite 20 of the remakes, including a couple of extras that we found on the interwebs and had to include here. What is your favorite?

The Autobiography of Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes - Twin Peaks Wiki It is a book by Scott Frost (Mark Frost`s brother) following the huge success of Twin Peaks TV series. A collection of transcripts from Agent Dale Cooper's audio tapes, from his childhood to the day he is assigned to Laura Palmer's murder. The book includes Dale's upbringing in Philadelphia, family, education at Quaker institutions Germantown Friends School and Haverford College, first stumbles with love, obsession with the FBI, and the relationship between him, Windom Earle, and Earle's wife, Caroline. Many of these tape transcripts are dictated to "Diane," though a later tape states that Cooper enjoys the thought of Diane listening to his tapes so much that he will address all tapes to her, whether she will ever listen to them or not. "Diane..." - The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper (Audio book) Early in season 2, Simon & Schuster Audio released Diane ...

20 Real Hilarious and Clever Notes From Children - This is Our Future In general, adults don’t give children enough credit. Just because they are smaller than us and terrible spellers, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a creative and hilarious brain inside of their heads. These notes written by REAL children will make you realize just how awesome some kids can be. If you’re not a parent already, this will definitely make you consider it. Barbara Hepworth Dame Barbara Hepworth DBE (10 January 1903 – 20 May 1975) was an English artist and sculptor. Her work exemplifies Modernism and in particular modern sculpture. She was "one of the few women artists to achieve international prominence."[1] Along with artists such as Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo, Hepworth was a leading figure in the colony of artists who resided in St Ives during the Second World War.

How To Make Your Own Homemade Fermented Tabasco Sauce For me, making my own food from scratch is really gratifying (and pretty cool too)! It’s really exciting know that you can make something and you don’t have to rely on pre-packaged foods to do that (or anyone else for that matter)! You just need your own two hands and a little know-how! I worked out the recipe by looking at the official McIlhenny Tabasco Website which states the ingredients: young green chilli Peppers and Salt and then it is fermented for 3 years. Well I’m here to show you a much quicker and simpler way (but still pretty genuine way) to make your own Tabasco Sauce)!

Journal Accepts Paper Reading “Get Me Off Your Fucking Mailing List” A paper that largely consists of the words “Get me off your fucking mailing list” repeated 863 times has been accepted by a journal that claims to be peer reviewed. The move might appear to offer hope to scientists struggling to get marginal work published, but really just exposes the extent of scam publications pretending to be contributing to science. “Publish or Perish” is more than a catch-phrase for scientific researchers. With rare exceptions, such as those working for secret military projects, research scientists need to publish regularly if they hope to advance, or often just keep, their career. High impact journals such as Science and Nature help most, but getting into these is hard and even less prestigious journals can be a challenge. This has created a market for bottom feeders with impressive sounding names and absolutely no standards.

Danmala Mandalas: Elegant, Intricate Circles Made From Nature With the unerring eye (and hand) of an artist, Kathy Klein makes these beautiful, intricate circles out of nature’s forms in unexpected combinations of color and texture. She calls these creations danmalas, based on the vedic sanskrit words dān (“the giver”) and mālā (“garland of flowers”), which translates to “the giving of flower circles”, although other objects such as pinecones and even vegetables are ceremoniously lined up into the familiar mandala shape. The careful placement of each object is juxtaposed with the natural imperfection of leaves and flowers, so that there is simultaneously a sense of precision and organic growth; even the ground that the danmala lies on plays a part in adding texture to each piece.

15 Cats Refusing To Accept That They Are Too Big For Their Boxes. #11 – Hilarious! Cats have a weird habit of trying to fit themselves in places that aren’t particularly designed for them. A container or box of any sort is their number one preference, mainly because of their predatory nature. Don’t believe us? The Child Eater of Bern Standing in the middle of Bern, Switzerland, is the Kindlifresser, or “Child Eater.” The fountain sculpture towers above the ground a baby half stuffed into his mouth, and a sack full of three alarmed tots slung over its shoulder presumably for later snacking. The disturbing sculpture is no modern work of art; built in 1546, it is one of the oldest fountains in the city of Bern. Strangely, no one is exactly sure why it’s there. There are three main theories.

Mr. Bean Inserted Into Historical Portraits By Caricature Artist Rowan Atkinson, the actor behind the famously hilarious Mr. Bean and Blackadder characters, has made another foray into the pages of history thanks to caricature artist Rodney Pike. He took some of history’s most famous portraits and jazzed them up by replacing the original subjects’ faces with those of Atkinson’s unforgettable characters. Artistic purists may not appreciate Pike’s comical work because it’s hard to take the works of Rembrandt van Rijn or Holbein the Younger seriously when the subject’s face has been replaced with a hilariously expressive scowl from Mr.

Homeland (TV series) The series stars Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, a Central Intelligence Agency officer with bipolar disorder, and Damian Lewis as Nicholas Brody, a United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper. Mathison has come to believe that Brody, who was held captive by al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, was "turned" by the enemy and now threatens the United States. The series has received critical acclaim, and has won several awards, including the 2012 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series, and the 2011 and 2012 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama, as well as the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, respectively. Carrie's job grows complicated when her boss, Director of the Counterterrorism Center David Estes, calls Carrie and her colleagues in for an emergency briefing. Carrie learns that Nicholas Brody, a U.S.

Human Tells His Dog He Got a New Pet From The Pet Store. The Dog Proceeds To Throw a Hysterical Fit. Some dogs prefer to be the sole animal in a household. They don’t want to be around cats or other dogs and they even may find small children to be annoying. When that’s the case, the same usually also goes for rabbits, chickens, birds, and any other animal creature that could possibly live alongside people!
