DIY Fanatic Makes Fan From Tree And Rice Cooker Switch

A DIY fanatic showed how he made a fan - from a tree branch and a rice cooker switch. Mohd Nari Bin Jaafar, 66, fashioned the household device from parts of an old fan and the electronics from his old rice cooker. They were fitted on a carefully polished teak tree branch. Mohd showed off the finished article, which operates when he flicks the dial from his old rice cooker. He then gave it to his daughter, Joanne, as a gift. Joanne said: ''Although my father wasn't able to study in university, his artworks and machines are genius." The proud daughter said that his father lives in a remote village and is frequently sick, but still makes time for his hobby of creating useful things from what is usually regarded as garbage. Mohd, who is also a painter, has slipped-disk, asthma and heart problems so he sells some of his works to neighbours. But the fan, varnished and designed by his father, was a gift to Joanne.

Artist Sprays Graffiti Lace Designs On Buildings

This street artist has become a hit - shunning brightly coloured murals to spray intrictate patterns of LACE onto buildings. Polish deisgner NeSpoon travels around the world identifying suitable locations for her patterns, based on the textile material which orginated from Nottingham, England. The impressive finished pieces have lead to her receiving commissions around the world and displaying at festivals. . NeSpoon said: ''I create works that are somewhere in between street art, pottery, painting, sculpture and jewelery. I would like to make positive art and to deal with positive emotions. Sometimes, I also comment in my art social and political issues that I consider important. Most of my work consist of prints of traditional laces, made in clay or painted on the walls. They are hand made, by the folk artists. Why laces? Because in laces there is an aesthetic code, which is deeply embedded in every culture. In every lace we find symmetry, some kind of order and harmony, isn’t that what we all seek for instinctively? Why street art? Because it gives freedom.''

600-Pound Buddha Statue Floating In Holy Water7m39s

600-Pound Buddha Statue Floating In Holy Water

This 600-pound Buddhist statue has amazed villagers - after it was able to FLOAT in holy water. The brass scultpred was placed in the pool and under normal circumstances should have sank - particularly because it has dozens of holes in the metal to allow in water. But the idol has now taken on a special spiritual signifacnce for villagers who believe it posseses mystical powers. Locals have been flocking to see it at the Tan Ched Cho temple in Ang Thong, central Thailand. Footage taken last Saturday (29/01) shows the Buddha figure flaoting in the holy water and receiving blessings in the form of flowers and donations. The abbot Piboonpattanapimol said the statue had been located in the temple for a long time with an unknown history. He said: ''Four men were carrying the statue out for an annual ceremony. It was supposed to be put in the middle of the pond but the statue never stood upright no matter how many times they tried.” The abbot decided to keep this heavy Buddha statue on the water and it suddenly became famous. People named the Buddha statue as “Loy Buddha” which means a floating monk. A loyal Buddhist Piroon Nimpraserd, 57, said that it was unbelievable to see the brass statue able to float on the water. He said: “The Buddha also has a lot of holes which make it harder for a 660-pound statue to float in the water. “Loy Buddha had made many Buddhists want to see this miracle with their own eyes. I’m happy to see more visitors come to the temple and pay respect to the statue.”
