These awesome needle-felted life-size woodland creatures (and a mob of desert-dwelling meerkats) are made by Bristol, England-based artist Amy Grimsby. Amy uses local wool to make her lifelike needle-felted sculptures. Many of them also feature internal wire armatures. So they aren’t just wonderfully cute, they’re also fully posable.
Visit Amy’s Crafty Grimsby Etsy shop for additional photos.

Nasir al-Mulk Mosque.
The Nasīr al-Mulk Mosque (Persian: مسجد نصیر الملك - Masjed-e Naseer ol Molk) or Pink Mosque is a traditional mosque in Shiraz, Iran, located in Goade-e-Araban place (near the famous Shah Cheragh mosque). The mosque was built during the Qājār era, and is still in use under protection by Nasir al Mulk’s Endowment Foundation. It was built by the order of Mirza Hasan Ali Nasir al Molk, one of the lords of the Qajar Dynasty, in 1876 and was finished in 1888. The designers were Muhammad Hasan-e-Memar and Muhammad Reza Kashi Paz-e-Shirazi.
The mosque extensively uses colored glass in its facade, and displays other traditional elements such as panj kāseh-i (five concaves) in its design, it is also named in popular culture as Pink Mosque due to the usage of beautiful pink color tiles for its interior design.
