Mona Lisa Recreated In One Line

A Singaporean artist has reproduced some of the world’s most famous paintings with just one spiral line. Chan Hwee Chong recreated Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Van Gogh’s self-portrait and Johannes Vermeer’s the Girl with the Pearl Earring. His work is so precise that if he makes a single mistake he starts all over again. Mr Hwee Chong, 33, who lives in Hamburg, was commissioned to create the pieces by pen maker Faber and Castell to show off their artist pens. He said: “It wasn’t as easy as we thought. We went through many rounds of trial and error, painstaking drawing the masterpieces in one controlled line, by hand.” w/ photo

This year, Dubai police uncovered a gang of dealers who were selling electric stun-gun kits for robots, designed to make the camels run even faster. They were fitted inside the robots and delivered electric shocks by remote control in order to get an edge over the competition.” w/ photos + video
