Human beings have always exploited their great observing skill trying to imitate nature in facing everyday problems. Some of the most impressive human inventions are inspired by nature (aircrafts in primis…) and researchers all over the world continue to study nature, just like our ancestors did.
Even plants gave their contribute to inspire humans, especially in medicine but even in architecture and visual arts. Here’s a small collection of diptych showing this symbiosis. Enjoy!
