Rocking In The Arms of a Skeleton Sounds Relaxing

Rocking chairs are sturdy, relaxing, and capable of making you shit your pants once you realize you’ve been sitting on the laps of a huge, unnaturally strong skeleton. Imagine if the jaws of the skull moved while rocking the chair; infinitely more creepiness added! Moving to the important, relevant stuff, the chair happens to be from the last century, probably made in the likeness of a mid 19th century Russian example. It went on auction recently and sold for an amount of $3120.

Sculptures Dissect Popular Characters To Show Off Their Anatomy

Artist Jason Freeny has an ongoing series that features popular characters with a slight twist. These characters maintain their usual appearance on one side, while the other (usually the left) side has been torn apart to show glimpses of the anatomy of these characters. We never imagined the Marshmallow Man would have bones and such anatomical detail, but well, good for him.

Smeared Sky by Matt Molloy

Images by Canadian photographer Matt Molloy present the sky in a way that seems to have it painted through broad brushstrokes. To achieve the effect, he takes hundreds of photos of the sky and then puts them all together to create images for his “Smeared Sky” series. The number of photographs required depends on various factors like weather conditions, cloudiness, or whether the object in the picture is moving or static. Eventually, the result is a beautiful composite where the objects stand ground to sky painted by a master.

Well, now we know, thanks to the efforts of New York based photographer Thierry Cohen. Modern cities are too consumed by light and air pollution to have clear starlit skies as seen in these pictures.
