Terra incognita (b)

Detail from "The mythical island of Thule on the Carta Marina", 1539 by Olaus Magnus, depicting creatures inhabiting mare incognita, from an old icelandic map.
Terra incognita "land unknown"; Terra incognita (with incognita stressed on its second syllable in Latin, but with variation in pronunciation in English) is the Latin term for "unknown land", used in cartography for regions that have not been mapped or documented. The expression is not found in ancient texts, and occurs first in the sixteenth century.

Cupcake Portrait (b)

Zilly Rosen, an artist from Buffalo, N.Y., created a portrait of Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln out of more than 5,000 cupcakes. The piece is on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum until 5 p.m. on Saturday, when the public is invited to "de-install" it.
When viewed from above, the installation looks something like an exercise in large-scale cupcake pointillism — each cupcake acts as one pixel in the image.
The cupcakes contain a cream filling and are topped with a colored disc made of fondant, which is a more pliable kind of icing made with powdered sugar.
This is Rosen's second cupcake portrait of Obama. In November she constructed one at his campaign headquarters in Buffalo. That one was about a fifth of the size.
