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. This collection of sculptures, compiled by Bored Panda, do just that. 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!

Everything about this sculpture is so mesmerizing, the color, the wrinkles/waves on dress, the shining globe, background. Can be printed, framed and put on desk.

If you think this is interesting, you should see the rest of oddities showing up at Nantes. Its like something out of the "Burning Man" festival, or verse-visa.
