    This is a series of geometric sandcastles built by sculptor Calvin Seibert (links to his Flickr with a ton more high-res shots) on the beaches of Hawaii. They are most impressive. You know, I built a sandcastle once when I was in Florida on vacation with my family. I remembe... / Continue →

    This is 'Angel', a hyper-realistic sculpture created by Beijing artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu to resemble their concept of a fallen angel. Well I can certainly see why the angel fell -- it doesn't have any feathers. You can't expect to fly with those uncooked hot wings! It wa... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of Italian sculptor Valeriano Fatica carving a dragon's head out of a watermelon. I also included a couple pictures of some of Valeriano's even more impressive work after the jump, including an unbelieveable Joker face, chimp and dog. Plus a video of him ... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of scrap wood sculptures created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo. They are most impressive. Also, that is some seriously good looking scrap wood. I have never found scrap wood that looks so nice. You could probably build a house entirely up to code with that... / Continue →

    This is the massive dragon sculpture created by driftwood sculptor James Doran Webb. Man, that thing would look amazing in my...okay, I don't really have any space big enough to fit that. Maybe if it was mounted on top of my car. Wait, where is my car? "You sold it for beer... / Continue →

    This is the kinetic chandelier installed at the Leningrad Center in St. Petersburg, Russia. It consists of 1,089 individually controlled wires and color-controllable LED bulbs. Man, I would love to stare up at something like this while I fall asleep at night. Instead I have ... / Continue →

    This is a series of bananas carved, cut and inked by artist Stephan Brusche to look like other things. He did a fantastic job. Still, I feel like it would be weird to be an artist and have somebody ask what medium you work in and have to tell them bananas. I mean, there's no... / Continue →

    The Bark Knight, get it? Because trees have bark on them. Growing up in Alabama we called that tree-skin. This is the carved wood Batman sculpture created by artist Thomas Earing, who, based on his name, I'm surprised doesn't dabble in jewelry instead. The Batman carving s... / Continue →

    This is the Jaws themed baby bed built by sculptor Joseph Reginella for his friends who were expecting a baby. You're gonna need a bigger boat. Pretty awesome. You know what kind of bed I had as a kid? None, I never slept -- I've been awake my whole life. On my fifth birth... / Continue →

    An unnamed US student had to be rescued by 22 firemen (although I assume at least 18 were just standing around laughing) after got trapped doing God knows what in a giant vagina sculpture in Germany. I suspect he's one of those folks that likes dressing up in diapers and prete... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of shots of the Spider Man sculpture created by artist Eunsuk Yoo that was on display at the Lotte Shopping Center in South Korea. Spider Man has a big boner. Some people didn't like that, and, after a year on display, the sculpture has been removed. Per th... / Continue →

    This is the hornet's nest that was built attached to a creepy wooden face sculpture and discovered by Redditor CountBubs's father. As far as groundbreaking discoveries go, this is a pretty piss-poor one. It looks like the hornets were trying to build the face a body. Countbu... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to print it out and make out with it like you do all those Jennifer Lawrence pictures you find online. This is a pictorial of the process that New York sculptor Randall Rosenthal uses to carve a box of money out of a block of wood. W... / Continue →

    This is David McCracken's 'Diminish and Ascend', a giant aluminum sculpture that looks like a stairway to heaven. It doesn't actually lead to the pearly gates though, it's just an optical illusion. It's really only 30-feet long and 15-feet high and is perched atop a hill at B... / Continue →

    This is the lion sculpture made entirely out of old shredded tires spotted (or possibly just stolen somewhere else off the internet) by Redditor m1keyth. I think it's somewhere in the UK, but it could be in the park by my apartment but I wouldn't know because I never leave. I... / Continue →

    This is the 12-foot mech sculpture built over the course of a month out of parts from an old Nissan and other scrap metal. With this guy standing guard in front of your house, you definitely won't have to worry about the neighborhood kids trying to toilet paper your yard. You... / Continue →

    These are two animal skulls with little clay Super Mario levels recreated on top by artist Tobias Wüstefeld for the We Love 8-Bit art show in Vienna, Austria. Why animal skulls? NO F***ING CLUE. It's art though, so it doesn't have to make sense. Personally, I think the scen... / Continue →

    These are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sculptures made entirely out of colored twist-ties by DeviantARTist justjake54. Leonardo and Raphael and Michelangelo are all looking in top shape, but Donatello, I'm not sure what happened to him. Plus I thought he was holding a pre... / Continue →
