Michelle Oswald (Michael Oswald) from childhood he knew that his future will be connected with the arts. Not thinking himself capable of becoming a professional artist, Michelle went to study at a graphic designer.

Ship Models Made From Human Bones

Macabre Ship Models Made From Human Bones — Left alone for years at the beginning of the 19th Century, French soldiers taken captive during the Napoleonic Wars found an unusually hobby — fashioning ornate replicas of British ships, out of beef and human bone. The soldiers made use of any bone they came across, to create these fascinating models. These rare "bone ship" models tend to sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction, as collectors go nuts for these macabre historical relics. But how on Earth did prisoners of war create such accurate ship models, out of such bizarre materials? The top image is a bone ship model created by a 19th Century French prisoner of war auctioned by Heritage Galleries in 2006. 08 more images after the break...

10 Incredible Navigable Aqueducts

Navigable aqueducts (sometimes called water bridges) are bridge structures that carry navigable waterway canals over other rivers, valleys, railways or roads. They are primarily distinguished by their size, carrying a larger cross-section of water than most water-supply aqueducts. Although Roman aqueducts were sometimes used for transport, aqueducts were not generally used until the 17th century when the problems of summit level canals had been solved and modern canal systems started to appear.

The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal over the valley of the River Dee in Wrexham County Borough in north east Wales. Completed in 1805, it is the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain, a Grade I Listed Building and a World Heritage Site. Built by Thomas Telford and William Jessop, it is 307 m. (1,007 ft.) long, 3.4 m. (11 ft.) wide and 1.6 m. (5.25 ft.) deep.

The towpath is mounted above the water, with the inner edge carried on cast-iron pillars in the trough. This arrangement allows the water displaced by the passage of a narrow boat to flow easily around it, enabling relatively free passage. Every five years the ends of the aqueduct are closed and a plug in one of the highest spans is opened to drain the canal water into the River Dee below, for inspection and maintenance of the trough.

Top 10 Beautiful Princesses

Princess Mary is living proof that fairy tales can come true. A native of Hobart, Tasmania, this elegant 39-year-old was working at an Australian advertising agency in 2000 when she literally bumped into a handsome young man named “Fred” in a crowded Sydney pub. It wasn’t until a half hour later that a friend informed her that “Fred” was in fact Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark.

The pair fell head over heels in love and were married four years later on May 14, 2004 in a lavish ceremony conducted at Copenhagen Cathedral. Mary has since become a beloved figure in Denmark where, according to a recent poll, 75 % of Danes believe she will make an excellent queen.

The Evade SUV launched in India, Prices start from Rs. 8.5 Crores including duties

Conquest Vehicles, a company famous for building the KNIGHT XV armored SUV, has revealed this week a new unarmored model, which is called the Evade. Even though the Conquest Evade looks very similar to the KNIGHT XV, there are a few differences. The Evade has narrower wheel arches, a new front fascia with redesigned headlights, a modified grille and other minor design changes. Its rear bumper has an integrated step to facilitate entry and exit. The Conquest Evade is made from aluminum and steel, and it's a lot lighter than the KNIGHT. This means better performance and improved efficiency. Unfortunately, Conquest
did not release a lot of technical details regarding the Evade. What we do know is that it's built on a Ford F550 Super Duty chassis and that it's available with either a petrol or a diesel engine. Naturally, it has a 4x4 drivetrain. The equipment list of the Evade includes quite a few fun gizmos. For instance, the search light you see mounted on the roof can be rotated 360 degrees with the help of a joystick. The Conquest Evade also comes with a FLIR night vision camera. 

The Evade SUV is available with petrol and diesel powertrain options and a 4x4 system. Prices start from Rs. 8.5 Crores including duties
