KANEKO’S CRIB NOTES XIV: UKOBACH
Now for a particularly ubiquitous example, possibly second only to Kikimora in the running for most egregious crib. Here we have Kaneko once again channeling Breton to a ‘T’ for a lesser spirit of the Goetia, Ukobach.
The design and pose remain largely unchanged beyond the addition of a pointed devil’s tail, though he also seems to be boasting a more stately do’ in Kaneko’s rendition. And though usually ascribed a sort of fiery red appearance, as in the Dictionnaire Infernal, here we’re treated to a greenish hue more evocative of his decidedly impish appearance.
BONUS: Ukobach as he appears in obscure Atlus fighter Groove on Fight, alongside a bevvy of other demons pulled straight from Breton.

Different Ways To Infinity: Modular
Design sculpture by felixluque is made up of ten dodecahedrons which can be arranged together in a variety of ways - video embedded below:
The system is composed of 10 rhombic dodecahedrons, geometrical objects part of the family of «Space-filling polyhedra»: shapes that can be assembled to generate a tessellation of an infinite space. These forms act as the building blocks for a sculpture generator.
The pleasure in this world, it has been said, outweighs the pain; or, at any rate, there is an even balance between the two. If the reader wishes to see shortly whether this statement is true, let him compare the respective feelings of two animals, one of which is engaged in eating the other.
