Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane
One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
She dances in light
Blissfully bringing elegance
Her beauty is true
I *love* that one with the sun in it!
Stunning work. (via 5.3” Black Obsidian Carved Crystal Detachable Skull, Opal teeth by Skullis TM)

Incredibly Carved Pencil Sculptures
Hungarian artist and deviantART user cerkahegyzo carves intricate miniature sculptures from a single lead pencil. The artist says it’s a hobby and form of relaxation for him and that he carves them in his free time. During the day he works as a professional tool-maker in Hungary.
Cerkahegyzo says he started carving after coming across the highly detailed sculptures of artist Dalton Ghetti, previously featured on Curious History, who also uses lead pencils as his preferred medium.
