works by Romanian duo SWARTE: Corina Olaru and Manuela Vulpescu - "Swarte is an open source of imagination which transforms contemporary topics into fine art. While generating feelings, we are trying to connect the world to a large amount of ideas and visions, which are supposed to make people reconsider themselves – this time in a colorful, provocative and intriguing manner. As we are creating stories about the day of tomorrow we believe that one can indulge himself to recognize his own core in one of our works and see it as an eclectic prolongation of his inner thoughts."
E is for Elemental.
"But come, hear my words, for truly learning causes the mind to grow. For as I said before in declaring the ends of my words: Twofold is the truth I shall speak; for at one time there grew to be the one alone out of many, and at another time it separated so that there were many out of the one; fire and water and earth and boundless height of air, and baneful Strife apart from these, balancing each of them, and Love among them, their equal in length and breadth.”

The frog jaw, Anurognathus (1923)
Phylum : Chordata
Class : Reptilia
Order : Pterosauria
Family : Anurognathidae
Subfamily : Anurognathinae
Genus : Anurognathus
Species : A. ammoni
Except for the fact that it was technically a pterosaur, Anurognathus would qualify as the tiniest dinosaur that ever lived. This hummingbird-sized reptile differed from the other pterosaurs of the late Jurassic period in its stubby tail and short (yet extremely strong) jaws. Its wings were very thin and delicate, stretching from the fourth fingers of its front talons back to its ankles, and they may have been brightly colored.
Because a free-flying, three-ounce Anurognathus would have made a quick snack for a much bigger pterosaur, some paleontologists wonder if this diminutive creature nested on the backs of large sauropods like the contemporary Cetiosaurus and Brachiosaurus. This would have afforded Anurognathus some much-needed protection, and the bugs that constantly hovered around skyscraper-sized dinosaurs would have provided it with a steady source of food.
