The mineral world is vast and full of diverse colors, shapes and textures, and it just so happens that a few of them end up looking like desserts, meat and fried food.

There you are, just minding your own business. And all of a sudden, a helpful sign tells you that there is a monkey. The sign doesn't tell you where the monkey is, just that it's around. And that it bites. And if you try to fight, you can't win. That's just one of the signs. What else is out there?
Art comes in all different forms. Just like "stone artist" Akie Nakata (from Japan) whose rocks are more than meets the eye. She decided to take something so simple as a rock and transform them into very adorable and a bit realistic animals. She has left the canvases at home and had decided that smooth rocks will be her platform. Drawing very detailed animal depictions on the surfaces.
Nakata create varies animals, and although they seem random, each holds a deep meaning. The talented artist describes it as seemingly serendipitous encounters... Nakata personally goes to collect the stones that she decorates. As she keeps her eyes pealed for potential finds, she does not have specific subject matter in mind. Instead, she finds that inspiration in each rock. To Nakata, the shape of every stone, defines a animal its own way.
Have you ever been in the car, driving, looking out the window and then BAM! There's a rock that looks like something else! Most likely an animal. And then you try to point it out to everyone but they just don't see it... well let's try that. Do you guys see what we see in these rocks?
