It’s almost as good as being at the Musée d’Orsay… maybe even better because a scary security guard isn’t yelling at you for having your nose centimeters away from priceless art. 

You can now see incredible detail of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings through the Google Art Project.

This isn’t a painting. It’s not from a movie. It’s not a strange astronomical event. This is real — what you can see when certain helicopters in Afghanistan touch down on sandy ground, raising dust, causing mysterious arcs of light to loop and dance through the air.

Eckhard Völcker’s extraoridnary, stained-glass-like images of conifers.  Explore more of his work at his website, Wunderkanone:

We are surrounded by another world that this hidden to the naked eye.  The microscope reveals its beauty…two hundred years ago, the news that a drop of pond water contained an abundance of small creatures was a big sensation. Soon afterwards, some tinkerers traveled around with home-made instruments, revealing this ‘wonder’ to a large audience.  In the vernacular, this instrument was called the ‘Wunderkanone’ - a ‘Wonder Cannon.’

Swoon.
