Momir Bojic, 70, retired from Bosnia and Herzegovina, spent two years transforming his 1975 Volkswagen Beetle into a mobile woodcarving art.
Now the entire body of the car is covered with more than fifty thousand hand-carved wooden scales. Almost every exterior detail of a fully functional car, from the wipers to the rearview mirrors and wheel rims, has been meticulously crafted from warm and noble light brown oak.
"What can I say? If a person loves cars, he can do whatever he wants, - says the proud owner of an extraordinary car. - People consider me an eccentric and ask how I can do this. But how can I not do this? If you really like something, you are capable of anything."
A devoted spouse helped the stubborn pensioner to make his dream come true: “My wife and I could have carved figures on the dashboard of a car in a few days, but time did not matter to me at all.

Take for example the creation of Lebanese designers Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri, who created the stunning designer furniture brand Bokja design. Relatively recently, in the Milan showroom, they organized an exhibition and sale of the incredible Bokja Bug car, decorated in their unique bokja-style. No, it was not just a car, - a real masterpiece, a work of lawsuit
While most computer users no longer see the use of floppy disks in their daily lives and ruthlessly throw them into the trash cans, artist Diana Ritter argues that the possibilities of floppy disks are truly endless. Not as information carriers, of course. But as materials for creating works of art
We have already seen the works that this artist creates, and it is difficult to forget them - not everyone can boast of skulls carved from fruit. But Dmitry Tsykalov, already known to us, did not stop there: he does not carve anything out of wood, but human organs, arranging it into an installation, and releases photographs of girls hung with meat weapons
Even if there are millions of people around, even if relatives are alive, you can still feel incredible loneliness, which eats up from the inside and forces you to take risky actions. A pensioner from China published a very unusual advertisement in the newspaper: he is looking for a family that would agree to "adopt" a man, take him to himself as a real family member in exchange for his pension
