Art is supposed to challenge us. It tests our beliefs, our prejudices and even the concepts of what we think is possible.
The sculptures are a great medium for this, since they allow the artist to expose tricks to human eye and get into the concepts of viewer logic . This collection of sculptures does just that, question the laws of gravity and physics. When seeing them it is inevitable to ask: how the hell did they do that? From incredible feats of balance on a large scale, to simple spells that make you scratch your head, this list has it all!
Scroll down to see them for yourself and get ready to be fooled by these magnificent pieces of art that challenge the gravity. Do not forget to vote for your favorites!
