Gaia, by Luke Jerram, at The Old Painted Hall in London. The installation aims to create a sense of the Overview Effect (a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment) through mimicking the experience of astronauts passing the planet from afar. It was pretty beautiful at night, especially in the setting of the hall which is already so breathtaking.

More than 2,600 years after their creation, Assyrian reliefs continue to amaze us.
The "Ashurbanipal Lion Hunt" is a group of bas-reliefs, originally located in the "North Palace" of Nineveh and now exhibited in Room 10 of the British Museum, considered a masterpiece of Mesopotamian art.
These magnificent reliefs were carved on large panels of alabaster and limestone between 645-635 BC. and they show hunting scenes of King Ashurbanipal (reign, 668-631 BC) and in a very real way, the pain of the animals.
