24 Gravity-Defying Sculptures That Messed With Our Heads


Workmanship should provoke us; our convictions, our biases, even our thoughts of what we accept to be conceivable.

Figures are the ideal vehicle for this, as they let the craftsman play traps on the eye and trap the watcher’s ideas of rationale. This gathering of models does definitely that. Raising doubt about the laws of gravity just as material science they make you wonder, how could they do that? From mind boggling accomplishments of parity on a great scale to plain head-scratching magic, the rundown has everything!

Look down to look at them for yourself, and get ready to be deceived by these dazzling and gravity-challenging pieces.
