24 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.

These sculptures do not follow the laws of physics at all.

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. This collection of sculptures do just that.

From incredible feats of balance on a grand scale, to just plain head-scratching sorcery, this list has it all!
