In the video for British heavy metal band Throne’s song “Tharsis Sleeps,” the directors Nicos Levesey (also a member of Throne) and Tom Bunker went all out and created the first ever, frame by frame stitched video. The animation and sewing took several months to do and many all-nighters using over three thousand embroidered “frames” and over 45 million stitches. Check out the colorful, incredible video/work of art below:
Watercolor representing the proposed statuary project, Egypt Bringing Light to Asia
Musée Bartholdi, Colmar.
After visiting Egypt in 1855, the French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi was deeply inspired by the ancient monumental statues that he saw. In 1869, he visited Isma’il Pasha, Khedive of Egypt, with a proposal for a new statue of his own: a lighthouse in the shape of an ancient Egyptian female fellah or peasant, holding a torch at the northern entrance to the Suez Canal in Port Said.
The project never materialised, so he recycled the plans for the Statue of Liberty instead.
