Apollo 11: To the Moon and Back, LIFE Covers the 1969 Lunar Landing For millions of people who witnessed the Apollo 11 mission, watching on television or following it on the radio as humanity improbably, actually walked on the moon, the event perhaps did not feel quite real until, more than two weeks later, LIFE published its definitive account of the epic journey. Today, in the age of 365/24/7 media consumption, learning that any publication had the confidence — or the audacity — to wait for two hours, much less two weeks, before publishing its take on arguably the most important and stirring story of the 20th century might strike some as close to unbelievable. But for a magazine like LIFE, which had earned its reputation as the de facto chronicler of the Space Race not through dumb luck, but through years and years of hard work, phenomenal photography and inspired reporting, waiting two weeks was simply the price one paid for getting it right.

His multicolored and meticulously sculpted art pieces simply astound with lifelike affinity, so in whichever way it’s even possible to mistake them for being real! In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels.
