They don’t just get us. They are us.
Houston, Texas-based artist Elaine Bradford uses crochet and sculpture to create fantastic art installations like the awesome piece pictured here. In 2011 Elaine created this permanent installation inside the Vinson Branch of the Houston Public Library. It consists of a life-size baby elephant and a flying gaggle of Canada Geese, each wearing colourful crocheted sweaters.
"Elaine’s color palette was inspired by the Houston Zoo’s tropical bird habitat. Chisel 3D assisted her vision by sculpting the 7 and a half-foot tall baby elephant. Elaine has paired with writer, J.D.Ho and illustrator, Rene Cruz, to create a book which explains the colorful story of the fascinating characters, entitled, Pachikadi and His Flying Friends. The book is available at the library for readers to check out.”

You guys have no idea how much money I’d save because I just wanna see the cat all the time.
This awesome sculpture, depicting a big bright orange octopus hoisting a tiny diver in one of her tentacles, was created by German sculptor Katharina Fritsch in 2010. We can’t decide if this lovely cephalopod has caught the diver getting up to no good and is about to dish out some punishment, or if she’s simply trying to give the diver a better view of something fantastic that they’re watching together.
