Inspiring Book & Paper Sculptures

A Fun Time With Knowledge. This book sculpture features very detailed skeleton sculptures and old school music player, but what made this sculpture really special is the fact that nobody knows who created it – the artwork was delivered to a library or certain event secretly. (Image Source:chrisdonia)

Plant of Appreciation. Another secretly delivered book sculpture with aggressive details. Next to the tree sits a paper egg lined with gold and quoted parts from the poem "A Trace of Wings" by Edwin Morgan. (Image Source: chrisdonia)

Dairy Nets & Soda. You can't deny that this sculpture is epic. Brian Dettmer takes a thick book and transformed it into an extremely impressive book sculpture, and what's unbelievable is, he didn't add anything extra to form the sculpture! (Image Source: Brian Dettmer)

Roads And Paths Photography

It's hard to imagine that something we see and use on a daily basis can exude so much beauty in photography. The scenic paths we hike on and explore, the roads we take to get to work and to travel across and beyond the boundaries of the country.

Salt Mine – An Astounding Subterranean Salt Cathedral

Deep underground in Poland lies something remarkable but little

known outside Eastern Europe. For centuries, miners have extracted salt

there, but left behind things quite startling and unique. Take a look at the

most unusual salt mine in the world.
From the outside, Wieliczka Salt Mine doesn't look extraordinary.

It looks extremely well kept for a place that hasn't minded any salt for

over ten years but apart from that it looks ordinary. However, over two

hundred meters below ground it holds an astonishing secret. This is the salt

mine that became an art gallery, cathedral and underground

Walk on Tightrope Across the Niagara Falls

Daredevil Nik Wallenda became the first person to walk on a tightrope across the Niagara Falls, taking steady, measured steps Friday night for 1,800 feet across the mist-fogged brink of the roaring falls separating the U.S. and Canada. Afterward, he said he accomplished the feat through "a lot of praying, that's for sure. But, you know, it's all about the concentration, the focus, and the training." The seventh-generation member of the famed Flying Wallendas had long dreamed of pulling off the stunt, never before attempted. Other daredevils have wire-walked over the Niagara River but farther downstream and not since 1896. 

"This is what dreams are made of, people," Wallenda said shortly after he began walking the wire.
He took steady, measured steps amid the rushing mist over the falls as an estimated crowd of 125,000 people on the Canadian side and 4,000 on the American side watched. Along the way, he calmly prayed aloud.
ABC televised the walk and insisted Wallenda use a tether to keep him from falling in the river. Wallenda said he agreed because he wasn't willing to lose the chance and needed ABC's sponsorship to help offset some of the $1.3 million cost of the spectacle.

Vietnam’s Colossal Cave
Located in central Vietnam's rugged Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Hang Son Doong might be the world's largest subterranean cavern. Expedition members enter through Hang En, a mile-long portal that tunnels into the lost world, hidden beneath a ring of mountains. The cave was carved out by the Rao Thuong River, which dwindles to a series of ponds during the dry months of April, May and October. At 2.5 miles long and 300ft wide, much of Hang Son Doong's colossal caverns are still being explored. (Carsten Peter/National Geographic Stock)
Hang Son Doong is 300ft wide and nearly 800ft tall -- room enough for an entire New York City block of 40-storey buildings. There are longer caves (the Mammoth Cave system in the United States) and deeper caves (Krubera-Voronja, the "crow's cave", in the western Caucasus Mountains of Georgia), but none compare to the overall size of this enormous subterranean passage.
A second skylight in Hang Son Doong, caused by a roof collapse long ago, reveals a jungle of hundred-foot-tall trees, lianas and burning nettles. An explorer climbs to the surface, while hikers struggle through the dense vegetation below.
A giant cave column swagged in flowstone towers over explorers swimming through the depths of Hang Ken, one of 20 new caves discovered in 2010. This cave, along with Hang Son Doong, is part of a network of more than 150 caves, many still not surveyed, in the Annamite Mountains near the Laos border.
