Art is meant to challenge us; our beliefs, our prejudices, even our ideas of what we tend to believe to be potential.
Sculptures are the perfect unit for this, as they let the creator play tricks on the attention and trick the viewer’s ideas of logic. This assortment of sculptures does exactly that. From unbelievable feats of balance on a grand scale to plain head-scratching magic, the list has it all!
Scroll all the way down to check people, objects, and animals that defy gravity for yourself, and prepare to be tricked by these attractive and gravity-defying items.
