Challenge #122 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
A textbook publisher is working on a science book for children of approximately 13 years of age. They need an image of a human doing something astonishing: something that requires great skill, training or physical ability. They're not looking for something that separates us from other animals, but something that demonstrates humans are capable of astonishing feats. We're not exactly sure of the context, but we have no doubt there are plenty of images of people doing remarkable things. Submit a suitable image.
