These stunning caves aren’t part of some fairy-tale world or horror movie – they can be found in some of the world’s most remote places in Asia, North America and Europe. Caves like these usually form when water seeps down through cracks in limestone rock. Over millions of years, these openings, and the limestone left behind by dripping water, can form the majestic caves you see here.

Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski’s grim and sharply satirical works, which we’ve featured before here, are a perfect example of art that speaks volumes. Kuczynski’s images are so powerful because they force us to face some of the worst realities of our times. It’s beautiful – not in a flowers-and-sunlight kind of way, but in a brutally truthful way. He addresses war, political manipulation and hypocrisy, environmental damage, economic disparity and many other ills facing mankind today.
We should warn our readers that some of these pictures may upset them, while others may fill them with joy.

The panels are a delight to see, with bright colors and cute animals. The comparisons between languages are also interesting, no matter what your native language is.
Many people see art as something with many barriers to entry – maybe the materials are expensive, maybe you don’t have the space, or maybe you think it’s difficult, requiring many specialized tools.
