Artist Damien Hirst created this amazing bicycle, plastered with the wings of thousands of butterflies, for Lance Armstrong to ride in the Tour de France finale. Naturally, PETA is pissed. "This is barbaric and horrific," said a PETA representative. [DailyMail]

The British, and many other cultures, have a long tradition of making art from butterfly wings. Google "butterfly wing art" and check out some truly beautiful pieces.
