    You can now own a piece of the old LOVE Park
    For those longing for the old LOVE Park and its infamous skate park where a 92-year-old Edmund Bacon once mounted a skateboard, listen up: You can now own a piece of the beloved park. Philly's Parks and Recreation Department just announced that it will be selling special commemorative pieces of granite engraved with the iconic LOVE sculpture at this year's Christmas Village.

Once numbering in the billions, the passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) went extinct in the early 20th century after decades of hunting, habitat loss and other factors led to a rapid decline in population. http://theatln.tc/2jyE3vw

    What DNA Says About the Death-and Rebirth-of America's Most Common Bird
    The genome of the passenger pigeon complicates the story of its extinction-and the hopes for its resurrection.

Believed to be at least eight millennia old, engravings in Arabia are possibly be the oldest depictions of dogs known to archaeologists. http://bit.ly/2jBmlrj

    These may be the world's first images of dogs-and they're wearing leashes
    Carved into a sandstone cliff on the edge of a bygone river in the Arabian Desert, a hunter draws his bow for the kill. He is accompanied by 13 dogs, each with its own coat markings; two animals have lines running from their necks to the man's waist.

Jean Hugo was born in Paris on this day in 1894. Great-grandson of author Victor Hugo, he was a painter, illustrator, and theatre designer whose work brought him into contact with some of the most influential figures of 20th century art: Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Marcel Proust, and many more. In addition to avant-garde theatre, he notably designed the costumes and sets for Carl Dreyer’s film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.” His personal work was modest in scale and dream-like in tone, mingling the influences of Henri Rousseau, Nicolas Poussin, and the Italian Primitives. He produced quiet, light-filled landscapes and scenes of magical realism like this small tempera painting from 1931. 🎨 Jean Hugo. The Flight (Beginning of the End of the World), 1931
