These dreamlike sculptures are the work of Chinese artist Hu Shaoming, sculptor and graduate of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. For his city series Shaoming created an awesome transparent blue mechanical seahorse, submerged in water with a silver cityscape on the top of its head emerging from the surface of the water.

For a series dealing with the concept of time, Shaoming disassembled old objects, such as cameras and telephones, and then rebuilt them with the surreally beautiful addition of zippers which open to reveal the inner mechanisms of each device.

What is this? A center for ants?!

Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders is delighted to share Postcards for Ants, an awesome ongoing project by Cape Town, South Africa-based artist Lorraine Loots. Every day Loot creates one exquisitely detailed and utterly itty-bitty painting. The project began on January 1, 2013 as a personal 365-day challenge, which means she’d created hundreds of these amazing miniature works of art.

When Cape Town was designated as the World Design Capital 2014, Loot decided to do a second year of tiny paintings, 365 Postcards for Ants, this time using her home city as the theme for each piece. Although each original painting has already been spoken for, Loot creates 5 prints of each day’s painting, which can be ordered through the project website.

To view more of Postcards for Ants visit Lorraine Loots’s website or follow her on Instagram, Facebook or right here on Tumblr at paintingsforants.

Our palms are sweating as we look at this vertiginously awesome drone photo of a team of nine mountain climbers atop the Jungfrau (elevation 13,642 ft), one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. It’s a phenomenal shot that was captured using a camera with a fisheye lens attached to a drone. The climb was sponsored by Swiss mountaineering outfitter Mammut.
