LT Connectors1 Dramatic Fairy Sculptures Dancing With Dandelions By Robin Wight Robin Wight, a UK-based sculptor that works primarily with stainless steel wire, has mastered the creation of enchanting and dynamic fairy sculptures that seem to dance in or struggle against the wind. Wight is very open about the process behind his beautiful fairy creations, describing it in great detail. They involve the creation of a robust steel skeleton that is then wrapped in progressively smaller gauges of wire – the thickest forms the skeleton, the next thickest forms the muscles and body mass, and the finest wraps these muscles to form the skin. Looks like our readers missed these sculptures when they created this amazing sculpture post! More info: fantasywire.co.uk | Facebook (h/t: colossal)

This Traffic Jam Was Stuck In Belgian Forest For 70 Years These spooky apocalyptic images are not a scene from “Walking Dead”, they were actually taken at one of the biggest car cemeteries in the world – the Chatillion Car Graveyard, Belgium. According to an urban legend these cars were left behind by US soldiers from World War II, who could not ship them back to the US so they decided to hide them in a forest until they could come back and retrieve them. The locals disagree and say that it’s simply an old car dump of vehicles made after the WWII. At one point there were four car graveyards in Chatillon with as many as 500 retro vehicles. h/t: amusing planet Image credits: Rosanne de Lange Image credits: Theo van Vliet Image credits: Marcel Wiegerinck Image credits: Marcel Wiegerinck Image credits: Marcel Wiegerinck Image credits: Theo van Vliet
