Real life Shrek. Maurice Tillet was actually a very intelligent person who was a poet and writer. He could speak 14 languages. Tillet was born in 1903, and as a teenager he manifested a rare disease called acromegaly, which caused his bones to grow uncontrollably. As a result his body was disfigured, and he turned into what people back then referred to as “freak show”; He took advantage of his condition, turning into a pro wrestler called the “freak ogre of the ring”.

Irving Penn – Dorian Leigh and Maurice Tillet, 1945. Maurice Tillet (1903 – August 4, 1954) was a professional wrestler known as The French Angel, who was a fan favorite back in the early 1940s. Born in France, Tillet could allegedly speak 14 languages, was a poet, and had early aspirations of being an actor. In his twenties, he developed acromegaly, a rare disease that causes bones to grow out of control. Dream Works based Shrek on Maurice
Maurice Tillet. Professional Wrestler & real life inspiration for Shrek
This is the real #Shrek. Maurice Tillet, a wrestler suffering from acromegaly.He died in 1954, and was the inspiration for the character Shrek. - I googled this. It's real unphotoshopped photo! Dreamworks doesn't confirm or deny this claim, but one animator said on his personal blog he had photos of this man (and several other wrestlers) on his wall while they drew characters.

Close up of the grass sculpture. The whole thing can be seen at www.flickr.com/photos/carolinespics/152697929/ This sculpture was created as a sister to the Mud Maid which can be found at the Lost Gardens of Heligan I was at Eden in Feb 08 and saw the beginnings of a new sculpture that I am sure will look just as good. It was made by brother and sister team Sue and Peter Hill, who have also made works for the Lost Gardens of Heligan and for the Eden Project. Recently this shot has been used for the cover of an Opera North programme for a Midsummers Nights Dream which I am thrilled about.

A beaded VW beetle! Amazing Huichol Bead Work on Wheels - The Beading Gem's Journal
Huichol Bead Work on Wheels - artisans from the communities of Nayarit and Jalisco in Mexico showcase their amazing bead work on an entire car. It took 9,000 hours to completely adorn this VW bug both inside and out, using over 2 million seed beads. They covered virtually all the surfaces including the mirrors, seats, steering wheel and dashboard! (Currently being exhibited at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC until May 6, 2014)
According to the Washington Post, this 1990 Volkswagen Beetle was transformed into a gorgeous work of art by eight Mexican artists who used traditional Huichol beading techniques. The total time it took to cover the entire car? A grueling 9,000 hours.

.“The artist’s life cannot be otherwise than full of conflicts, for two forces are at war within him [or her]—on the one hand, the common human longing for happiness, satisfaction and security in life, and on the other a ruthless passion for creation which may go so far as to override every personal desire … There are hardly any exceptions to the rule that a person must pay dearly for the divine gift of creative fire.” —Carl Jung

Closer view of The Tunnel: Hole house of Texas. The structure is an after effect of a dreadful natural calamity. The building was one of the major tourist attractions of Texas in the United States of America. It looked like a piece of art created by god himself. Though the tornado was a dreadful calamity it left a master of art piece behind.

Hole house of Texas, Houston. In the summer of the year 2005 Texas was struck by a destructive tornado. A wooden building was carried away by the force of the tornado and slashed a hole through another wooden building that was standing a few meters behind the first building. It was frenetically twisted into the other one forming a horizontal chimney. Though the tornado was a dreadful calamity it left a master of art piece behind.
