Winged Victory of Samothrace-Νίκη τῆς Σαμοθράκης  

Victory of Samothrace is a Greek sculpture of the Hellenistic period (second century BC) depicting the goddess Nike, the personification of victory, placed on the front of a ship. She is currently in the Musée du Louvre. The total height of the monument is 5.57 meters. The Centre for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France (C2RMF), which had tested the statue was able to identify minute traces of blue, invisible to the naked eye. “These traces can be concluded that the polychrome statue was, at least in part,” the museum. The coat of the statue was to be decorated with a colored stripe. Another surprise: a lock escaping the bun Victory appeared on the back of the neck, hidden under a capping modern plaster dating from the twentieth century. Discovered in 1863 off the Greek island of Samothrace (northeast Aegean), reconstructed in the Louvre between 1880 and 1884, she set foot on a base shaped prow placed on a pedestal. It has been completely restored and reinstalled on its base.

He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.

A Bonsai Tree in Space - Azuma Makoto
Japanese artist Azuma Makoto recently ventured to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert (home of Burning Man) to launch a Japanese white pine bonsai into space. The artist also arranged a stunning bouquet with about 30 varieties of flowers from around the world and launched them into space as well. The project, entitled Exobiotanica, occurred on 15 July
To accomplish the feat Makoto collaborated with Sacramento-based JP Aerospace, a volunteer-based organization that constructs and sends vessels into orbit. The team used helium balloons to launch the plants and the bonsai reached a height of 91,800 ft (27.98 km), while the bouquet topped out at 87,000 ft (26.51 km).
