Vintage Deepsea-Creatures aus Glas


io9 hat im Science Museum ein paar über einhundert Jahre alte Glasfiguren gefunden, alles Viecher aus der Tiefsee. Glas-Kraken, Glas-Quallen, Glas-Korallen... Aaaaaw! Ich liebe es!

This gorgeous glass sculpture of an Actinophryid, an ocean microorganism, is over 100 years old. It's one the few surviving scientific models of tiny, swimming creatures created by a father-son team of glassmakers.

A few years ago, Wisconsin Zoological Museum worker Paula Holahan opened some cabinets that hadn't been touched for decades. Inside, she found several boxes of delicate glass replicas of ocean life.
