Repentant Magdalen with a Document
George de la Tour
c.1600s

I misread this as ‘Replicant Magdalen…’ and idly wondered if she was a Nexus 6.

A Lion Made from 4,000 Pieces of  Metal by selçuk yılmaz

Created from nearly 4,000 pieces of metal scraps, Aslan, is a recent sculpture by Istanbul-based artist Selçuk Yılmaz. The piece took nearly a year of work and involved hand-cutting and hammering of each individual metal piece. The final work weighs roughly 550 pounds (250kg). While we’ve seen dozens of artists use multiple components to create a final form, it’s worth noting how well the bent mental lends itself to the final shape of this impressive cat.

"I don’t want to create films as a catharsis. I want to create films through which children can see and experience something new. I want to make that one unforgettable film in everyone’s childhood, something they can enjoy for at least 30 years." — Hayao Miyazaki

So much love for Miyazaki, and the worlds he brings to life.
