Who said interior design is not for dogs? One Husky decided to prove the doubters wrong as soon as his owners went out to the movies. In only 3 hours, the aspiring artist turned the whole apartment into his canvas. The pooch released his inner artist by inking his paws and turning the floors (and anything else that got in the way!) into a giant piece of art. The artist even left his signature on the bed to prove the authorship. Although his new design had to be cleaned up by his humans, we hope that one day his artistry will be recognized.

Artist Leaves Dress In The Dead Sea For 2 Years And It Turns Into Glittering Salt Crystal Masterpiece
For her latest project, Israeli artist Sigalit Landau decided to submerge a black gown in the Dead Sea. The gown entered the salt-rich waters in 2014 and was recently removed for display, and as you can see from these stunning pictures, the end result is nothing short of magical. The project is an eight-part photo series called Salt Bride and was inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play is about a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover, and Landau’s salt-encrusted gown is a replica of the one worn in the dramatic production of the 1920s.

This monster leaf has shot into the record books because it has an incredible 11ft diameter.
Grown at Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, the Gunnera Manicata leaf is big enough for a whole family to shelter under. The plant, that is native to Brazil, has been growing at the gardens for the last 30 years but its leaves this year are three feet longer than usual.
It is believed the wet summer is responsible for the booming of the bog-loving behemoth. Curator Stephen Griffith believes his leaves are the largest in Britain and the bounty is a bonus after last winter’s cold weather caused serious harm to several plants.
The leaves of the plant – which is also known as a Giant Rhubarb – are usually about 8ft wide. Mr Griffith said visitors to the sheltered gardens, that enjoys its own micro-climate, have been stunned by the size of the leaf.
He said: “This plant comes from Brazil and lives in bogs so it has enjoyed the wet conditions this year.
“People are amazed and I’ve even seen some visitors sheltering under the leaves when it has been been raining.” (BNPS.co.uk)
