Old socks can be used to make fun things, and new socks can be used to paint pictures. True, you will need a lot of socks. So, the artist Hong Yi used about 750 pairs to paint a huge portrait of a famous Chinese director named Zhang yimou… The portrait turned out to be monochrome, since the artist used only black and white shades, as if forming an image with light and shadow. The resulting canvas, woven from socks, the author fastened with pins and, with the help of a support group, hung the portrait on bamboo beams.
Hong Yi is famous precisely for the fact that she is a non-standard artist who paints not with paints at all, but with objects that are completely not intended for these purposes. For example, traces of a cup of coffee, stones, salt and sugar, milk and ketchup. Anything that comes to hand, the artist can turn into a work of art, which is rightfully proud of. At one time, she graduated from the University of Melbourne with a degree in design and architecture. Today, the girl lives in Shanghai and works in an architectural company, while continuing, however, to engage in her unusual work at her leisure, which makes people wonder.
By the way, the girl is engaged in creativity under the pseudonym Red, and her portfolio can be seen on her personal website.

Most of the world has been calculating time for four centuries using a calendar called the Gregorian. The year of this calendar is divided into 12 months and lasts 365 days. One additional day is added every four years. Such a year is called a leap year. This is necessary in order to remove the difference between the movement of the sun and the calendar. This concept was introduced in the late 16th century by Pope Gregory XIII as a reform of the Julian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is generally accepted because
