Check Out These Gorgeous Little Floating Worlds Inside Test Tubes!

Dutch artist Rosa de Jong is a master of tiny sculptures. How tiny, you ask? Tiny enough to fit into a test tube!

Have you ever seen those delicate little ships in bottles or terrariums with dainty plants inside them? If you’re into that sort of thing, you’ll definitely love the work of this artist who excels at depicting artworks within test tubes!

For her series Micro Matter, Dutch artist Rosa de Jong creates tiny floating worlds inside test tubes. Her pieces are made up of a variety of materials like sticks her pet cat brought in, rocks from the Caribbean, sand from the Monument Valley, and so many others. She carefully cuts, glues, paints, and sculpts these tiny vertical scenes that look deceptively realistic and whimsical at the same time.

The painstaking process of sculpting a world that fits in the palm of your hand.

Some of her sculptures not only show the surface, but also what’s underneath. This gives some of her pieces the illusion that they’re growing upwards and downwards at the same time.

Artist Creates Illustrations That Explore Ecstatic World of Couple’s Intimacy

These steamy illustrations will definitely get your fingers busy.

For starters, a good sex is something that offers fun, romance, and excitement, among others. While most will agree that every couple needs it, some of them do not understand the importance of doing the deed. You see, it is not just about fulfilling your partner’s desire. Sexual intimacy plays an important role in ensuring a relationship’s success.

Interestingly, an artist by the name of Frida Castelli explored the ecstatic world of a couple’s intimacy. And although sex (in one way or another) remains to be a taboo in the society, it is about time that people start to accept its essence in every relationship.

From foreplay to different sexual positions, Frida beautifully created illustrations that will give you a deeper look at intimacy. We have compiled her works below, and let us know which ones are your favorites. Obviously, you are going to love one or two of them. Enjoy!

Here’s What Countries Would Look Like If They Were People

In the global arena, every country has its image, but how would they look as people?

When it comes to the global arena, it is safe to say that each country has its own image to portray. It may paint a picture of culture, tradition, and people. In any case, they are meant to describe a country as a whole. But what if each of them actually looks like ordinary citizens of today?

This is exactly what a Russian artist by the name of Anastasia Bulgakova thought. In her project, she draws “personifications of different countries.” All of them are interestingly drawn in “militant and warrior-like,” covered in blood and dirt. Mind you, she does not aim any political persuasion here.

As she explains,

Simply because that’s what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom.

Anastasia adds that every character in her project has, in one way or another, stereotypical attributes. If for an American it might appear a bit naïve and idealistic, a Japanese dude will come with a suspicious smile. And, as she points outs, one can easily recognize her characters in the street.

Well, without further ado, here are character designs Anastasia made for each country in the world. Check them out and let us know which one is your favorite (aside from your own country, of course!).
