Gorilla Reunites With The Man Who Raised Him And It Is Just The Best.





By Alex Watt
            
Damian Aspinall is a conservationist who raises gorillas in his wild animal park in England with the hope that they may someday return to the wild. Five years ago, Aspinall released one of the gorillas he raised, Kwibi, into the African jungle. He finally journeyed to the jungle to see how Kwibi is doing on his own.
Damian was unsure if the adult male gorilla would remember him. Watch the video below and see how the reunion went down.

What a nice thing to do for someone in need. If you see your fellow man in trouble, no matter what their story is, stop to help.


These Tiny Castles Fit On A Single Grain Of Sand - Unbelievable.

By Alex Watt
            
Artists Vik Muniz and Marcelo Coelho are the builders of the smallest sand castles in the world. It took them four years of experimenting with different methods, but they finally did it. Apparently, it’s not easy to etch an intricate drawing into a single 0.5 millimeter grain of sand. Who would have guessed?
Though the sand castles are small (microscopic, even) the “wow” factor is humongous. You will be amazed by the detail and overall quality of their work.
Check it out!

This May Look Like A Photograph, But Wait Till You See How It Was Made. Mind Blowing!


Below are some prime works of artistic mastery. So much so, that, were the first two pictures not included in the series, you might mistake these for photoshopped pictures of the actual thing. Instead, the artist Zaria Foreman painted these using a variety of methods. Once you’re finished looking at the photos, start from the end and work your way up to the first picture where Zaria is painting. It’s absolutely disorienting.

10 Incredible Optical Illusions That You’ll Only Be Able To Find Outdoors.

By Alex Watt
            
When you think of "optical illusions," you probably think of carefully drawn images or tricky photos. However, you can find some by just looking outside.
I had no idea Mother Nature was so deceptive! I’d feel betrayed, but these optical illusions are too cool to be anything but amazed. These all-natural illusions will blow your mind, if not your paycheck on hiking equipment to check some of them out in real life. Think of them as organic treats for your brain.
Take a look!

This Horse Isn't Actually What He Appears To Be... He Is An Awesome Sculpture.

By Steve Rushing

South Dakota artist John Lopez has an incredible talent. Using only old farm machinery and junk yard scrap metal, he creates life sized works of animal art that must be seen to be believed. To a passer by, they may seem like just normal animals.
He is able to re-use scrap metal and turn it into some amazing sculptures. Other people might have seen just a pile of junk, but he saw opportunity.

Working from his home, he first started after making a head stone for his aunt purely from scarp metal.

"My favorite part about these pieces is the texture," explains Lopez. "I just start grabbin’ stuff from the pile and welding it, in and if you weld enough of the same thing on over and over it creates this really cool texture that I’ve never seen in these kinds of pieces before. And I think that’s what draws people in."
