With Soft walk, and ‘whimsical’ look, this feline vendor in yellow strolls gently across the rows of fish filled stalls, and crowd market of Kai Phong. an adorable cat in costume, well suited and primed for it’s ‘food’ inspection job, and it has come to view the goods on display at this Vietnamese market and over see if health regulations are maintained.
Surprisingly his presence seem not arouse any suspicion, or caution from the traders, given the ordinary imperative of a cat to steal meat. This 3-year-old cat and his owner, Lê Quốc Phong, like to spend time travel and playing pretend.
Named “Dog” by Le Quốc, due to its nature of keeping it’s mouth open– like a dog — this cat loves pictures, playing dress-up and his food, so his photography owner, Lê Quốc Phong indulges it, putting “it” in various catchy poses, and letting the star work it feline charm.
“Dog feels very cosy and can walk normally.” the photographer says, ” and he is widely loved, with friends globally ”
The duo are quite famed around East Asia, including ; Vietnam, Thailand and China, and have done several commercial for food brands in Vietnam.
The setting is a carefully crafted miniature village, with several tiny single room abode — and single entrance — constructed with mostly locally sourced natural materials ( twigs, coconut bark, and ferns ) amidst logs pilings protected from cats. the mice village sits side by side a chestnut tree , peaceful, in the backyard garden of this Sheffield home.
This oddly unique ‘ prairiesque’ hamlet is home to George, the cheerful little field mice, and his family , adopted by Simon Dell, a UK nature photographer who spends hours chronicling his merry life with that of his partner and expected liters. George had charmed his way into the photographer’s heart , who has in turn accommodated the marry mice in his well crafted miniature village.
Dell, had stumbled upon “George”– while he fled from the neighborhood cats– during his nature walk and decided to offer him shelter considering and food to as a sort of curiosity which so far has gathered support on his daily Facebook page. .
“Being a keen wildlife photographer I am often taking photos of birds on the feeders in the garden. Then one day I looked down to see a very cute little house mouse standing up in the grass.”
The initial log pilings offered little shelter, so Dell set to task fitting it with tunnels and internal spacing, and adding several opening to allow easy movement. All of his effort accumulated in a miniaturized mice village for little George to run around; safe from his natural enemies.
Influenced by natural elements, airtight artworks feature several lustrous metallic sculptures ; brilliantly crafted from disused utensils, and scrap metal, clipped, bent and smoothed over to fit with the underlining theme of the forms required.
” my goal as an artist is to make artwork unlike art people have seen, while at the same time recognizable in the identity of everyday materials. I only hope the sculptures will inspire others to appreciate the simple, neglected items from which my creations are born. ”
Majorly animal motifs, and intricately detailed to match life size animal forms, the sculptures depict continuous life cycles, consciously and unconsciously permeated in daily awareness and serve as a testimony to the belief of conserving and appreciating of earth’s resources.
Up to this day, Wilson continues sculpting his creations out of recovered parts such as knives, forks, or cuillères. He bends metal to his will bringing various types of animals to life, and we can’t get enough of his work.
IN the heart of downtown Hubei province, lays a gargantuan sculpture. On display in front of the Fortune Plaza Times Square in Wuhan, the giant wooden sculpture of a roaring lion stands proudly in the Central Chinese city square. Over 47.5 feet long, 16.5 feet high, and 13 feet wide, the Oriental Lion is a force to be reckoned with. But, that isn’t all about this interesting Oriental lion.
The sculpting took over 3 years from conception to final finish and from the workshop transported 3000miles to the display point. The head, paws, and tail were been sculpted into a smooth finish, with the torso maintaining the trunk’s rough texture. The oriental lion was carved from a single redwood tree trunk under the specialist expertise of one of china renowned architects Dengding Rui Yao.
Mr Yao concluded the work with over 20 people assisting in one way or another. The project which was initiated in Myanmar, where the carving was finished, was completed on December of 2015.
Oriental Lions play a significant role in traditional Chinese culture. When Buddhism spread from India to China, so did many of its symbols, including the lion. Seen as protectors, lion statues became a common installation at the gates of imperial palaces, including the legendary Forbidden City in Beijing. Today, they can even be found outside of hotels and restaurants, just in case any evil spirits drifted from the Han dynasty into modern times.
Aditya from Indonesia tries to visualise some animals in different form. Using Photo editing tools, he reshapes pictures of animals in rectangles and squares, a process known as Anicube or Animal Cube.
“ I am interested in the cubical shape and trying to change some animal form into cubes. First, I was afraid if it would be nicer than the original shape. I was really curious about the results, so I tried to find some funny animal pictures to be changed into Anicube.” he had commented about why he chose this unique perspective to viewing nature.
To make his images, the pictures of the animal pictures were collected from Unsplash and Pixabay. Aditya is an indonesian illustrator and a freelance design. Below are some of his works.
Travel is big and with social media fuelling this passion, more and more persons with the means gets to share their experience. But or most of us without the financial capacity, it hurts scrolling through gigabytes of pictures wishing for some sort of lucky break. But one self taught designer has decided to do something about it. With his latest project called : “Life” the egyptian born film marker takes a series of minimalist photographs, which are exact replicas of the natural thing.
” One of my dreams to travel the world with my camera, take photos of wildlife animals and under the sea creatures, swimming with whales, dolphins, etc. like a National Geographic photographer, so was the purpose of this project to create my own wildlife photography using some animals and sea creatures models in my room studio..” Amr Elshamy says.
Elshammy , also a filmmaker , started work on “LIFE” the later part 2016, working for 2 months. To make the detailed replicas , he had to partner with the Chinese company “MOJO FUN” . Also this project was a way for him to campaign against global warming and other form of environmental degradation. The clean outcome was achieved with photoshop.
For the north pole photo, 2 flash heads one on the top (Soft-Box), and one behind the background were used to get a nice clean white background, and snow sprinkled was bought for 1.2$

Gargantuan horses , bears , dinosaurs and huge bisons dot the landscape in southern Dakota , USA. Mostly made up of scrap metals carefully welded bits by bits to the shapes they are now; almost life-sized creations in nature.
They cast a deliberate surreal feel of freedom across the plains , although daunting that task may seem , these structures have somehow managed to achieve the almost unattainable blend of been out of sync yet fitting so well into the surrounding. These are the works of metal sculptural ; John Lopez.
Initially starting out as a bronze sculptor he has gone on to create large and powerful beasts. Those fierce creatures are made of scrap metals fillings , sourced from his farmlands and ranges across the state.
“I am never bored. I look forward to each new creation,Lopez had said, and it is helping me grow and develop as an artist.” when asked by @Auquerry where he gets his inspiration from.
The South-Dakota based artist was motivated by his geography and desire to put waste metals to good use. And his ideas for sculptures comes from the ranches scattered along the Grand River in northwestern South Dakota—not far from where Sitting Bull was born and died. Not far from where thousands of buffalo were killed during the westward expansion of settlers and gold miners.
In the bone yards of Tyrannosaurus rex and grizzly bears. Since farmers and ranchers populated this chunk of reservation land, real cowboys have been roping and branding and sheering and haying and harvesting.
