Princess of Hope: The Princess of Hope is a statue, founded in Hingol National Park lies on the Makran coast in Baluchistan and approximately 275 km from Karachi. The name Princess of Hope was given by Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie on her visit to this area acting as the UN Ambassador of Goodwill in 2002.
The Natural Sphinx: Only companion of Princess of Hope is a Sphinx like structure. The Sphinx are mainly associated with Egypt, which were sculpted figures as Egyptian deities. These Sphinx like the Great Sphinx of Giza were constructed on the order of the Pharaohs to depict the pharaoh being the son of God. These have many religious and cultural symbolisms.

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.
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.

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.
