    These beautiful moths and butterflies look like they’re ready to flutter up and away, but they won’t be doing so because they’re wonderful textile sculptures painstakingly created by North Carolina-based artist Yumi Okita. She sews, embroiders and stitches all sorts of multi-colored fabrics to create these oversized insects, which measure nearly a foot wide. She also adds painted details along with feathers and artificial fur. With great care Okita has achieved an awesome balance between astonishing realism and fanciful invention.

    19th-Century Marble Statue a Dead Ringer for Ron Swanson

    An eagle-eyed Reddit user has spotted a marble statue that bears a striking resemblance to actor Nick Offerman, best known for playing the curmudgeonly libertarian Ron Swanson on television’s Parks and Recreation, reports MTV.

    Despite the statue’s majestic mustache, it is not, in fact, a depiction of Swanson/Offerman, but another famous thespian: 19th century Shakespearean actor Edwin Forrest. Dating to 1865, the sculpture, by artist Thomas Ball, is housed at Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre.

    Edward Hopper was born today in 1882. What do you imagine the usher in this painting is thinking?
