    This is an ancient Greek sculpture of what appears to be a woman using a laptop. Of course it's not a laptop, it just looks like one. Just kidding, totally a laptop. I think she's Skyping a lover and about to take her top off! The piece, "Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman... / Continue →

    This is the teensy train carved into a carpenter's pencil by artist Cindy Chinn. Although the train engine was actually carved from a piece of lead she removed from the pencil, then glued back in. The rest of the train is carved into the pencil though. Me? I was carved out ... / Continue →

    This is a series of faux-marble sculptures created by artist Travis Durden (not his real name) featuring Star Wars character heads on classic Greek sculpture bodies. Do they all have penises? I sure hope so. I've always wanted to see how I size up next to Darth Vader and Bob... / Continue →

    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 →

    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 →

    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 →
