Exotic creatures: Lyrebirds

From Wikipedia:
"A Lyrebird is either of two species of ground-dwelling Australian birds, most notable for their superb ability to mimic natural and artificial sounds from their environment. Lyrebirds have unique plumes of neutral coloured tailfeathers.
Lyrebirds are among Australia's best-known native birds. As well as their extraordinary mimicking ability, lyrebirds are notable because of the striking beauty of the male bird's huge tail when it is fanned out in display..."

Venus de Milo's arms

They recreated the arms of Venus de Milo - if 'the future is here' the past is here too...

From the source:
"... Behold the advanced technology of the Non-Contact 3D Digitizer, developed by Konica Minolta. This digitizer uses a laser to scan the target object and then analyzes the reflected light to perform detailed measurement of the object's shape. This technology was used as the basis for a grand project in which the Venus de Milo was recreated in perfect 3D detail on a computer. View the true form of the beautiful Venus, a sight which no one has ever seen before."
