A Turkish professor has created a bizarre artwork made from the severed heads of cows to draw attention to outbreaks of violence at the university where he works. Dr Mehmet Kavukcu, a lecturer on photography at Ataturk University in the city of Erzurum, created his brutal work by placing 15 cow heads onto a large cube-shaped ice sculpture. The professor says the heads, which he purchased from a local slaughterhouse, have already had a positive impact on students who last year made national headlines when a group attacked police officers in a university canteen.

Fun History Fact,
Each of the 8,000 terracotta soldiers in Chinese Emperor Chin Shi Huangdi’s tomb have different facial expressions, facial features, and facial hair. After analyzing each of the soldier’s faces using facial recognition software, it was determined that none of the soldiers have any matching characteristics. Archeologists and historians theorize that each individual terracotta soldier was modeled after a real soldier in the Emperor’s army.
