Six Unusual Works of Art

Rice Patty Drawings

Japanese farmers cut designs into rice patties to create overhead images, such as this one of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Tire Sculptures

Mexican artist Betsabeé Romero sculpts intricate designs into old tires.

Shadow Art

Tim Noble and Sue Webster create realistic shadows out of piles of trash.

Sandwich Art

Mark Northeast creates imaginative sandwiches for children.

Sand Animation

[YouTube Link] Ukranian artist Kseniya Simonova creates moving sand pictures in front of audiences. This is her depiction of the German invasion of the Ukraine during World War II.

Motionless Moving Sculptures

Dutch artist Peter Jansen creates polyamide and bronze sculptures that look like a split second in time.

I found all of these marvelous works of art in Neatorama's archives.
