ブラジルで大量の蜘蛛が空に出現 【動画】

村上春樹の小説「海辺のカフカ」では空から魚が、ポール・トーマス・アンダーソン監督の映画『マグノリア』ではカエルが降ってきた。

しかしブラジルのパラナ州サント・アントーニオ・ダ・プラチナでは突如、大量の蜘蛛が空中に出現するという怪奇現象が起こった。<BIZARRE>では、現地の住民がその光景を捉えた動画が紹介されている。

It's Raining Spiders In Brazil


電柱や電線を利用しながら、広範囲に巣を張り巡らしている蜘蛛の大群。実際に集団でこうした巣を作る種もいるようだが、この蜘蛛はそれとは別の種では? という声もあり、原因は不明。この街ではしばしばこの現象が見られるという。

まるで大量の蜘蛛が空中に静止しているかのような、非常に不思議な光景だ。

ブラジルで大量の蜘蛛が空に出現 【動画】
WHAT: Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan presents Pope John Paul II lying on his side clutching a large pastoral staff, felled by an errant meteorite.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Did you read the meteorite part of the description?

WHAT: A lovely watercolor by British comedian Robert Popper. Here's his caption: "I dun a painting of the Pope ('Goodbye Pope'): pic.twitter.com/bQm9Z45l."

WHY WE LOVE IT: We're just suckers for homemade pope paintings.

WHAT: This controversial Pope John Paul II statue by artist Oliviero Rainaldi stands in Rome.

WHY WE LOVE IT: When the statue was first unveiled in front of Rome's main train station in May 2011, it was widely criticized by passers-by as looking more like Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini than the beloved Polish pope. Even the Vatican's own art critic wrote that it looked like a "bomb" had landed.

WHAT: Martinho Dias' color-hatched portrait of Pope Benedict XVI.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Dias has a whole series dedicated to intriguing portraits of Benedict XVI.

WHAT: French anticlerical artist Jean-Paul Laurens painted this landmark work in 1870.

WHY WE LOVE IT: It depicts the famed "Cadaver Synod," when controversial pope Formosus (891 to 896 AD) was posthumously tried and convicted of perjury.

Image: Jean-Paul Laurens (1838–1921), Le Pape Formose et Etienne VII - Concile cadavérique de 897 (Pope Formosus and Stephen VII - The "Cadaver Synod"), 1870, oil, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes (Wikimedia)

WHAT: A hilarious take on the pope courtesy of Italian artist Pep Marchegiani.

WHY WE LOVE IT: It's part of an entire series titled "Vatigun," which you can view here.

WHAT: A tribute to Pope John Paul II painted on a security gate in New York City. Artist James De La Vega, a graffiti artist with a degree from Cornell University, painted it on a Spanish Harlem storefront.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Who doesn't love some good papal street art design?

WHAT: China-based artist Michael Tsaturyan's "Pope Art." Get it?

WHY: Catholic Andy Warhol would be so proud.

WHAT: Diego Velázquez's portrait of Pope Innocent X.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Scroll to the next slide...

Image: Portrait of Pope Innocent X, by Diego Velázquez (1650). Roma, Galleria Doria-Pampili.

WHAT: Francis Bacon's remix of Velazquez's Pope Innocent X.

WHY WE LOVE IT: It is definitely one of the more frightening artworks we have ever seen.

Image: Francis Bacon, Untitled (Pope), Circa 1954, Est. $18/25 million, Sotheby’s New York, Contemporary Art Evening Sale, 13 November 2012.

WHAT: A portrait of Pope Leo X, with Giulio de' Medici (1478-1534), future Pope Clement VII, to the left and his cousin Luigi de Rossi (1474-1519) to the right.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We're not trying to stereotype here, but this looks like it could be an early scene in "Goodfellas." Just look at Clement VII's scowl and tell us he's not going to make someone pay.

Image: Pope Leo X, between 1518 and 1519, oil on wood, 154 × 119 cm (60.6 × 46.9 in), Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

WHAT: A portrait of Pope Benedict XVI by German artist Michael Triegel.

WHY WE LOVE IT: When Pope Benedict greeted the artist at the Vatican, he reportedly said, "Ah, so you’'re my Raphael..."

WHAT: Portrait of Pope Julius II by Raphael.

WHY WE LOVE IT: That is one sad pope, guys. (We do love the copious amount of rings he's rocking, though.)

Image: Raphael (1483–1520), Pope Julius II, 1511–1512, oil on panel, 63 × 40 cm (24.8 × 15.7 in), National Gallery

WHAT: The Vatican's newest official court artist Natalia Tsarkova poses next to a painting of Pope Benedict XVI on December 18, 2012 in her studio by Rome.

WHY WE LOVE IT: After Michelangelo and Raphael, the Vatican's latest official painter is something of an unusual choice -- an ebullient Russian woman with a pet owl.
