Sculpture_Geek made a heartfelt tribute to Toys R’ Us by sculpting and coloring a bust of the company’s mascot, Geoffrey the Giraffe. He also made an equally detailed base for the sculpture. Fans of the store could be in for a pleasant surprise though!

While the building has yet to be completed, we still are wowed by the idea that a 400 foot-tall skyscraper has a working 350 foot-tall waterfall built into its facade. The Liebian International Building is being built in Guiyang, China. Sadly, they can’t run it all the time.
Sideshow Collectibles shows off the work that went into what is likely the most impressively-detailed scale replica of the queen from Aliens ever made. Designed with the help of Legacy Effects, this incredible sculpture will look great alongside your $1000 Alien King.

Australian artist David Morrell bends metal wire to form roller coaster style tracks, on which marbles spend their days rolling round and round in a perpetual loop. His kinetic sculptures are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, and he accepts commission work.
A few years back, we saw breathtaking images of The Kelpies, a pair of 98-foot-tall horse sculptures in Falkirk, Scotland. Now you can see how they came together in this wonderful time-lapse by Walid Salhab, who captured over 120,000 individual images to complete the film.
Sergio Jauregui makes detailed miniatures of buildings and other urban objects out of particle board and discarded electronics. Amazingly, he’s been doing this only for a few months, picking up the basics by studying theatrical set design. He’s also open to commissions.
The Art Assignment argues that whether it be something as primitive as bones or as advanced as a neural network, there’s always a human touch at the root of all machines used to make art. We like to think of it from the other end: art is unfinished until a human mind ponders it.
