Japanese artist Azuma Makoto has worked with bonsai trees in the past, but his newest botanical art project is out of this world—literally. On July 15, Makoto and his crew ventured to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to launch two objects into space: “Shiki 1,” a 50-year-old white pine bonsai suspended from a metal frame, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, hydrangeas, lilies, irises, and other flowers.”

Leonardo da Vinci Mona Lisa 
The painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a white Lombardy poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506, although Leonardo may have continued working on it as late as 1517. It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic, on permanent display at The Louvre museum in Paris since 1797.[2]
