Turkish Artist Turns Faceless And Boring Clothes Into Piece Of Art

Pop Culture Icons Invade Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ Painting In Adorable Series

Everything started when an education blog mistakenly shared Aja’s painting of the Eiffel Tower as Van Gogh’s.

Thanks to Botswana’s excellent conservation policies, the country has one of Africa’s largest wild lion populations – estimated at 3,000. For poorer subsistence farmers, though, it is harder.
