These imposing Grecian figures are only two of the many mystical sculptures that can be found in William Ricketts Sanctuary in Mount Dandenong, Australia. Inspired by the indigenous people of his country, Ricketts used them as models for his work, a massive collection of statues that presented them as god-like stewards of the land.

As creepy as these statues may seem, Ricketts didn't want to frighten anyone. His goal in their creation was to give people a place to reflect on nature and what it means to be one with the world. He explained:

Each one of us is a transformer of Divine Power and when love finds form in sculpture and music we are richly blessed because through such we can reach God… Man is nature’s masterpiece, therefore claim your inheritance by giving her the co-operation you owe.

Taken only days before her death on August 31, 1997, this photo of Princess Diana sitting on the diving board of Mohammed Al Fayed's private yacht "Jonikal" shows the loneliness that she endured even as one of the most photographed women on the planet.

The last weeks of her life were spent doing what she always did, moving back and forth between luxury and getting her hands dirty. At the beginning of August she was in Sarajevo fighting for the removal of landmines. She visited with victims and soldiers who were keen on her success.

Following the trip to Bosnia she went to the Mediterranean with Dodi where she vacationed on his luxury yacht before flying to Paris where she spent her final days. After all of her trips to the Middle East where she put her life in danger, it's mind boggling to think that her fiery death came in Paris, a metropolitan city built on love.
