This magnificent eagle was created by Russian artist Sergey Bobkov, who specializes in making animals using wood chips cut from Siberian cedar.
“Bobkov, who received a patent on manufacturing art sculptures made of cutting chips, has made a total of 15 life-size wooden sculptures of Siberian birds and animals. The artist is known to study an animal’s anatomy and habits before creating these one-of-a-kind sculptures.”

To get a better sense of where the horse-eagle is on this building: if you look at this photo you’ll see eagles atop the ledge of a tower in the upper righthand corner of the image. Yeah, that’s pretty impressive.
We suspect that Vitaliy (or possibly an equally daring friend) might have played a role in placing the mask on the eagle, but without proof we’re prepared to believe that all of the buildings in Moscow sporting ornamental eagle sculptures are being enhanced with horse masks as a matter of official policy.
Visit Photo Vide and Vitaliy’s blog to check out more of his heartstopping photography, including the rest of this series shot inside and around the Kiyevsky station.
Giuse Modica (aka Giuse) is a Dutch artist and illustrator who loves skateboarding so much that he created a series of illustrations depicting various animals enjoying his favourite sport. Complete with a dog doing an ollie and a mighty eagle pulling off a 360 flip, the series is entitled Animals Skateboarding and we think it’s pretty awesome.

From the Department of Awesome Once-In-A-Lifetime Photo Ops come these incredible shots of a mighty Golden Eagle wielding a knife. Yep, that’s pretty freaking awesome.
“A forgetful photographer had the shock of his life when this soaring golden eagle made off with his knife. Dutch snapper Han Bouwmeester had been using the utensil, in Västerbotten, Sweden, to carve up chunks of meat in a bid to attract the birds of prey.
But, busy with the task in hand, the wildlife aficionado clumsily dropped it in the snow. He said: ‘Once it flew away in the sight of my camera I saw something red in his claws and made some shots of it. On the display from my camera I saw immediately that it was the knife we used to cut the meat. We surely left it in the snow.’
‘At such a moment we were firstly enraged with ourselves because this was a fault. But he soon dropped the knife after realising it was useless for him. I was happy with the absolutely cracking and unique picture. The eagle is holding it exactly as we should do with it. What a crazy once in a lifetime moment this was.’”
A Boy and his Golden Eagle…pretty freakin’ awesome.
