Gravity-Defying Sculptures That Will Make You Look Twice

Art is supposed to challenge us. Challenge our beliefs, our prejudices and even our concepts of what we believe to be possible.



Sculptures are a great medium for this, as they allow the artist to play tricks on the eye and mess with the viewer’s concepts of logic.

Calling into question the laws of gravity and physics they make you wonder, how the heck did they do that? From incredible feats of balance on a grand scale, to just plain head-scratching sorcery, this list has it all!

Scroll down to below to check them out for yourself, and prepare to be bamboozled by these gorgeous and gravity defying pieces. Don’t forget to upvote your faves!
