Tree Cathedral

“Giuliano Mauri created ‘natural architecture’ by blending organic materials like trunks and branches with classic architectural elements, creating impressive large-scale edifices. In 2001, his love for nature inspired him to draw up the plans for a project that took his art to a whole new level and left the people of Bergamo stunned – a cathedral made only of trees. The artist envisioned a unique organic building designed in such a way that the branches of the trees forming its pillars would extend and arch to become its roof and walls.” w/ photos

Astronaut Ice Cream Balls

Astronaut Ice Cream Balls takes everything you love about astronaut ice cream (the freeze dried-ness) and combine it with that theme park favorite dotted ice cream treat (the mini ball-ness). Each tube is full of three different flavors (the classic neapolitan): chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Plus, once you eat them all, you can use the tube to hold your extra tiny space gear. Or quarters. Astronaut Ice Cream Balls – the Pluto-sized food with the Jupiter-sized taste!” w/ photos
