Today is World Art Day.

I couldn't find any art that I liked and thought representative of our diverse planet so here is a video about Strandbeest (beach animals) sculptures designed by Theo Jansen to mark the occasion.

Jansen views these as new forms of life, a new nature, critters able to walk on the wind. His aim is to "put these animals out in herds on the beaches, and they will live their own lives.

Imagine coming over the top of a dune ridge and seeing a beech with a heard of Strandbeest.
