Artist Creates Surreal Sculptures from Organic Materials

Artist Spencer Byles spent almost one year in the woods creating beautiful surreal sculptures from organic materials. The great act of devotion to his art, sculptural artist found materials throughout the unmanaged forests of La Colle Sur Loup Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins. He lives with his family at this place and worked together with elements of his natural talent by surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment. 
His project is intentionally secretive and there’s only way you’ll see this work short of his photos is by going into the woods and finding them yourself. I imagine that coming upon such a imaginary structure unexpectedly in the woods is sure to be quite a enchanted surprise. Moreover, one of the most attractive things about his artwork is its brief nature. The pieces were not intended to last, and apiece sculpture will ultimately be reclaimed by the natural environment that helped Byles shape it. This full circle gives the organic pieces a potent poetic and philosophical touch.

Russian Photographer Snapped Fearless Images by Risked his life on a Frozen Lake

These stunning images of Siberian ice cave have taken by a Russian photographer by risking his life on a frozen lake. The rising sun was fearlessly capture breathtaking photos of magical ice cavern provide a rare glimpse inside the frozen grotto. Andrey Grachev travel across cracked ice that could give way at any moment. However several adventure seekers have plunged through the ice in the past. But 35 years old valiant ignored the all dangers and takes the stunning cave photos in a beautiful golden sunlight.  He and local guides safely crossed Lake Baikal in Eastern Siberia, almost more than 50 cars are still waiting to be plucked from the frigid water after falling through the ice. 

He saw magical cavern on Olkhon Island with hundreds of icy stalactites and massive blocks of blue ice, named “ice hummocks”. He knew very well about dozens of accidents are taken place every year, when cars collapsing under the ice and of curse there’re casualties as well. Andrey said; the danger comes from the ice's ability to move which results in some pretty wide cracks, and even sometimes these ice hummocks can be longer than two metres wide. 

The sound of ice cracking underneath his feat was unnerving but he got used to it as it was a regular occurrence. He further explained, that most of the accidents taken place when ice is not thick enough and normally in Dec and Jan or when drivers overlooked the marked roads. Fortunately we didn’t face any dangerous situation, but on the way back we abruptly came across a massive crack on the road which pushed us to find a new route. The winter seasons at Lake Baikal is simply wonderful and I’ve no words of real nature, but I’d way that in spite of dangers the experience was well worth the risk.

The Gold Superyacht

When it comes to the competitive world of superyachts, size is everything. The magnificent superyacht is actually a size of an oil tanker with indoor ski slope, on board BMWs and five helicopters. That’s why one design firm has gone all out in its bid to allure the rich and famous, drawing up plans for a vessel based on the dimensions of an oil tanker. The superyacht measuring is 918 feet in length, including a four storey ski slope complete with Austrian themed Apres lodge. The overwhelming boat is approximately double the length of the world’s biggest superyacht, Azzam well owned by Abu Dubai Royal Family which measures is 590feet.

The Austrian firm MOTION Code: Blue has design the superyacht, and basically planned to attract billionaires in the Gulf, who may like to celebrate their oil based wealth with size like an oil tanker superyacht. In fact, the world's first tanker sized yacht is called Imāra, a name based on the Arabic word for “emirate”. If you’re billionaire then you can entertain guests across the 11 decks, store five helicopters on board, receive guests arriving at the three helipads, and relax in the four-deck-high atrium, complete with waterfalls.

Moreover wet garages will store tender boats and toys including speedboats and jet skis so visitors can amuse themselves without having to head to the beach. As well as a hull painted white and gold, the huge area can be explored using custom painted BMW 13 electric cars to zip passengers form one end of the boat to another. Furthermore on board there will be eight two-storey VIP suites, another 12 guest cabins, theatres, four beach clubs with access to the sea, concert halls, libraries and offices, and a seafront gym will offer the picture-perfect view while working out, along with tennis courts, a massive spa and a selection of restaurants and a shisha bar.

This is trendsetter in yacht design and has generated and pushed several trends in modern yacht design since its foundation back in 2009. We’re pleased to develop the world's first tanker-sized yacht named “Imara”, which is based on the Arabic word for “emirate”. Hence with a length of 280m, a beam of 57m and a total of 11 decks, “Imara” set clearly new standards in private yachting. It clearly shows what is possible when thinking outside the box.
