Princess of Hope & Sphinx – Structure Cause: The coast of Makran has muddy hills with very fast winds blowing throughout the year. These fast winds cut through the muddy hills and mountains and can result in a natural rock formation shaped like a standing lady (Princess of Hope) or sphinx. The Natural Sphinx is obviously not as sharply carved as the sphinx in Egypt however this is worth seeing once in a lifetime.

This Tree Can Grow Over 40 Different Kinds Of Fruit |Nayab khan

Sam-Van-Aken

A ward-winning modern artist and Syracuse University art professor Sam Van Aken grew up on a family farm in Reading, Pennsylvania, but he drained his college years and much of his early career focused on art rather than agriculture. While Van Aken says that his work has always been “inspired by nature and our relationship to nature,” it wasn’t until recently that the artist’s farming background became such a clear and significant influence, first in 2008 when he grafted vegetables together to create strange plants for his Eden exhibition, and then shortly after that when he started to work on the hybridized fruit trees that would become the Tree of 40 Fruit.
Each tree begins as a slightly odd-looking specimen resembling some kind of science experiment, and for much of the year, looks like just any other tree. In spring, the trees bloom to reveal an incredibly striking and thought-provoking example of what can happen when nature inspires art. Then, over the course of several months, Van Aken’s trees produce an incredible harvest of plums, peaches, apricots, nectarines, and almonds, including many you’ve likely never seen before.
Thus far, Van Aken has created and placed 16 trees in museums, community centers, and private art collections around the country, including in Newton, Massachusetts; Pound Ridge, New York; Short Hills, New Jersey; Bentonville, Arkansas; and San Jose, California. Using a unique process he calls “sculpture through grafting,” Van Aken creates trees that grow and support more than 40 varieties of stone fruit, including many heirloom, antique, and native varieties.

The first time Sam Van Aken saw tree branches being grafted and grown onto other trees, he likened it to Frankenstein. Yet, when the process became a full-time fascination, the Syracuse University art professor did not seek to create a monster but a piece of art. The "Tree of 40 Fruit" is Van Aken's creation, a single tree that can produce 40 different stone fruits, or fruit with pits, including peaches, apricots, plums, cherries and nectarines.

sunyuan pengyu  Two Chinese Artists Created This Terrifying Hyper-realistic Sculpture Of The Falling Angel  Must Link - http://www.sunyuanpengyu.com/works/2008/Angel6.htmlA human like ‘Angel’ has fallen out of the skies over China. The immensely human like creature with what seems to be angel wings as arms appears to have drop down from the sky in China’s capital.
But, before you lose your breath, the exceedingly realistic work was maked by Chinese artists, Sun Yuan and Peng Yu. The pair is known for blurring the lines between art and reality by using resources such as human body fat in their work.
Their latest piece, permit ‘Angel’ has just been installed in China’s capital, publicize People’s Daily Online. It attributes an old lady prostrating on the ground with featherless wings on her back, has shocked people on Beijing Street. This piece of work is made of silica gel, fiberglass, and stainless steel etc.
The intension behind the ‘shockingly realistic’ angel is to highlight the tension and changeover between the supernatural and the mundane. The angel, a transcendent being, has become powerless, impotent to carry out God’s will, or to help those who believe in its existence, foreign media reported.
‘Angel’ is the brainchild of Beijing artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu, who have been known to create artwork from real human corpses and flesh.
Their current piece is made from silica gel, fibreglass, stainless steel and woven mesh, Bored Panda reports, but that doesn’t mean it looks any less real.

Arts:-
Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, usually involving imaginative or technical skill. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art. This article focuses primarily on the visual arts, which includes the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential—in a way that they usually are not in a painting, for example. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature and other media such as interactive media, are included in a broader definition of art or the arts.Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences. In modern usage after the 17th century, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, the fine arts are separated and distinguished from acquired skills in general, such as the decorative or applied arts.
