Defying the Laws of Gravity = Mind Boggling

​​Flying Stone Statue in Cairo
The poor stone is trying to "hang on" to its friend, who is at the verge of floating away!

Floating Elephant

Bet you can’t pull off a horizontal handstand, er, I mean trunkstand.

Leaning Statue

As if Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal’s gravity-defying stunt wasn’t enough, here comes a statue from Emil Alzamora pulling off a reverse Smooth Criminal.

Quintet of Smile

If you have never thought of human teeth as creepy, now you know better. The stuff of nightmares from Hitoshi Itoh. There’s more in his personal Flickr account.

Force of Nature II

An amazing statue exemplifying the ferocity of Mother Nature’s wrath. She could you blow you off your toes if you don’t treat her right. At least this statue is still standing firm as a reminder for us to take better care of our one and only home.

Suspended

Watch as these brave ladies stand under this precariously suspended err, boxes?

Circus Act Between Coconut Trees

Balancing a sculpture on a thin rope is hard, but making one pose for gymnastic rings between two coconut trees is definitely harder.

Hair-Raising Sculpture

A structure of a lady on a cakey surface, nothing special about it until you realize that this is a nano sculpture
that measures 80 x 100 x 20 microns, created on a strand of hair (the average diameter is 40-50 microns, for your reference).

A Car and its Parking Space

Poor car got caught in a pavement wave of the weird kind and got stuck there.

Tour by Catellan

Not really a statue but come on(!) look at how that hoop is holding up the table.

Gravity Defying Cars

If rockets, don’t work, maybe these cars will get the deed done.

The Farm, Kaipara, New Zealand

Somewhere in New Zealand, a giant dropped his hankerchief.

Appearance Emptiness

This is probably one of the most zen sculptures I have ever encountered.

Sculpture by the Sea by David McCracken

The stairway leading to heaven appears to have landed on a seaside in Australia.

Impossible Sculpture

An optical illusion IRL.

Floating Giant Tap

Someone broke logic and this is what we have to deal with now.

Giant Clothespin

That giant who lost his hankerchief, decided to do his laundry.

Monte-Meubles, L’ultime Déménagement

We all want to live in a castle in the sky, just maybe not this one. There are a few rooms, floors, walls, windows and ceilings missing.

Sand Sculpture

We are all familiar with sandcastles, but a sand sculpture that defies gravity? Probably your first time seeing one too.

Basketball

Here we are looking at a great display of knowledge of structural engineering and sculpting.

Floating Ball of Steel

This ball-and-chain doesn’t look heavy at all.

Boy with Dolphin

An amazing sculpture of a boy and a dolphin, great balancing act that makes people wonder how it’s possible (one word: cantilever).

Big Sculpture Balancing Act

Suspended in mid-air supported only by a thin rope, this sculpture is an awe-inspiring, heart attack-inducing masterpiece.

Invisible Statues

Something is broken in the matrix. These guys didn’t load correctly.
