Art: Strange Tire Elephants

Life is great. After decades of exploring cyberspace, we can still find new beautiful strange things like this almost every day. One of our favorites is by sculptor Villu Jaanisoo, an elephant constructed from used car tires.

As long as they don’t become breeding grounds for mosquitoes, True Strange News would like to see hundreds of these popping up all over the place. So cool.
