artist facing jail term for his sculpture.

Enrique Gomez De Molina is an artist from Miami who creates bizarre sculptures, with the stuffed parts of dead animals. While taxidermy itself isn’t something new, what De Molina does is he mixes up parts from different animals to create a new one, a new species all together. The result is what some might call art, and others may find plain disturbing.

For instance, one of the strange beings created by De Molina is a combination of a squirrel and a crab. The head of a squirrel and the body of the crab. Another one has the heads of two swans placed on the body of a goat. The art is all fine, but the artist himself is facing the possibility of landing in jail for no less than 5 years. He may also have to cough up $250,000 in fines. The reason – he illegally imported the body parts of endangered species, a crime that he has pleaded guilty to. He was arrested in November.

According to the police, De Molina did not obtain the permit required to import animal parts, skins and other remains. He apparently was aware that his actions were illegal. However, he went ahead and smuggled in parts are remains of cobras, hornbills, pangolins, etc. from all over the world. He asked people to wrap them in carbon paper while bringing them in. He is also charged with being in the possession of the skins of Java Kingfisher, birds of paradise and collared kingfishers.

While these sculptures might look disturbing and even seem like cruelty against animals, De Molina says that his aim is to raise awareness regarding the danger faced by a range of species. He wanted to depict the dangers of genetic engineering and human intervention. Meanwhile, he offers his pieces for sale on the internet and through exhibitions. The prices go up to $80,000. His work was recently put up at the Scope Art Fair in Miami. Two pieces were sold for a total of $100,000.

the man who wants to design transport: Joseph Nelson part 1

Joseph nelSon, from auckland, NZ currently in Seoul, S. Korea was spotted through behance of the conceptual bike design. there are 2 projects that particularly capture my attention, the modern electric bike, and the honda sponsored dirt bike.

mayan temple ( giant chocolate sculpture)

its magnificent. its great. its yummy. its a mayan temple made from 90 tons of chocolate. can you believe it?

Weighing in at 18,239 pounds (!!), Qzina Specialty Foods chocolate model of an ancient Mayan temple has broken the Guinness World Record for largest chocolate sculpture.
Corporate Pastry Chef Francois Mellet and MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France or Best Craftsman in France) Stephane Treand led their team in building the winning work. With a 10ft x 10ft square base, and measuring 6 feet high, the chocolate sculpture—which pays homage to the Mayans’ role in the origins of chocolate—accurately recreates the details of a Mayan temple.
The sculpture will be on display at the Irvine-based Qzina Institute of Chocolate & Pastry from June 4 to December 21, 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar year, when it will be destroyed.
