A man saw a duck trapped below ice in a lake in Norway. The duck was barely moving, clinging on to life.

A Gorgeous Outdoor Cathedral Made Of Live Trees Grows In Northern Italy

Eighty hornbeam saplings flower and fade with the seasons inside the columns. - A Gorgeous Outdoor Cathedral Made Of Live Trees Grows In Northern ItalyIn 2001, Italian artist Giuliano Mauri began work on an outdoor architectural installation near the foot of northern Italy's Mount Arera. He would continue to work on the impressive project until his death in 2009. The following year, his creation was finally completed by those who now view it as a memorial to the late artist.

The finished sculptures form hallowed grounds named Cattedrale Vegetale, or "Tree Cathedral." This gorgeous blend of nature and spirituality will uplift any visitor lucky enough to soak in its beauty in person.

The structure is formed by 42 ivy-covered columns separated in five aisles.
