7) Staring impassively out from the murky waters of Bilbao’s River Nervion, the eerily lifelike face of a young girl drowning in the tide has been unsettling people in the Spanish city since she appeared unannounced last week. Mexican hyperrealist artist Ruben Orozco created the enigmatic figure, entitled ‘Bihar’ (‘Tomorrow’ in Basque) for a campaign by the BBK Foundation – the charitable arm of Spanish lender Kutxabank – to encourage debate around sustainability. The goal is for people to be aware that “their actions can sink us or keep us afloat”, the artist told Spanish news website Nius. “At first it gave me a feeling of stress, when more of the face was out of the water, but now to me she communicates sadness, a lot of sadness,” said visitor Triana Gil.

10) Luciana Benetti feeds Chanchi in her kitchen in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Millions of people have found solace during the pandemic in cuddling a dog or cat. For a few, comfort comes in other forms. As the new coronavirus began to circulate last year, Luciana Benetti found her plans for a big traditional 15th birthday party scrapped. In its place, her parents gave her a pig. Chanchi turned out to be a loyal and loving companion — racing to her side when she fainted. “One day my legs gave way and he came running. He grabbed my hair and raised my head,” she said. She had been taking online classes at home, unable to see friends or schoolmates. “I didn’t feel well. I was dizzy because I couldn’t leave.” Without Chanchi, “I wouldn’t be me,” said Benetti, who often sleeps alongside the 20-kilo (45-pound) Juliana pig that greets her with a squeal of delight when she arrives at her house.
