23 Cool Sculptures You Won't Believe Actually Exist

Which of these pieces did you find the most incredible? Let us know in the comments below. Subscribe to our channel for more amazing videos just like this, thanks for watching! 15 - Cinderella Effect… Hungary is where you will find The Shoes, there are on the Danube Bank in Budapest. It was the idea of Can Togay, a film director and sculpted by Gyula Pauer – and was placed there to honour the Jews who were killed in WW2. Fascist Arrow Cross Militiamen told them to remove their shoes, and they were shot at the water’s edge. 14 - The world in her hands… This is a series of sculptures called Force of Nature, created by Lorenzo Quinn. There are several of these statures around the globe, and they all depict women holding the earth in some way. You can find them in the US, UK, Singapore and Monaco. 13 - Just hanging out… This statue is found in Prague, and it’s called Man Hanging Out. The statue is actually of Sigmund Freud, and was created in 1996 by David Cerny, a Czech Sculptor. It’s meant to indicate Intellectualism during the 20th century, and David Cerny’s unsureness about it. 12 - Relaxing in the tub… That is literally the biggest bath in the world, and work is called The Bather, or Die Badende in German. Artist, Oliver Voss, created this sculptor using foam and steel, and it was 13 feet high and about 99 feet long. It was in the Binnenalster Lake in Hamburg for 10 days. 11 - Creativity Takes Courage… And David Cerny, whom we mentioned earlier, has many very controversial pieces of art around the world. This one is much tamer, and called Metalmorphosis. It’s in North Carolina and there are 40 steel pieces, grouped together into 7 segments – which rotate 360 degrees, whilst spitting water out into the lake. 10 - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle… This beautiful Sea Horse was created by Jeffro Uitto, who collected the pieces of drift wood, and affirms that no live trees were hurt during his art process. His business is called Knock on Wood, and he is from Washington. 9 - Breaking through… Passer Through Walls is a statue found in Paris, which is based upon a character written by Marcel Ayme. The character realizes that he can walk through walls, so begins a life of crime and adultery. During his last escapade, the magic stops – and he gets trapped inside the wall. 8 - It always seems impossible, until its done… That is one of the most famous Nelson Mandela Quotes, and this incredible structure was designed by South African artist, Marco Cianfanelli. It was created to celebrate the 50-year Anniversary of Mandela’s imprisonment by Apartheid police in 1962. There are 50 columns for each year, and it’s placed in Howick where the arrest too place. You have to see it from the right angle, to see the face of Mandela. 7 - Letting Go… There is something so ethereal about these wire sculptures created by Robin Wright, a UK Based artist. They are of fairies dancing in the wind, and some are very small and others life-like. They are formed in dramatic poses, and all have dandelions or a part of nature with them. 6 - The Power of Books… It’s incredible how art can be created from anything, and this amazing sculptor was put together by Mike Stilkey. He uses old books that are going to be recycled and creates these beautiful pieces with colored pencils, ink, lacquer and paint. 5 - Perfection Takes Time… This installation is known as the Kelpies, and too Andy Scott 8 years to put together. They are 100 feet tall, and the inspiration behind them is the legend of a water spirit that takes the shape of horses. The sculptors are the entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal in Scotland. 4 - Art that moves you… Anthony Howe is the creator of some incredible abstract and kinetic structures. He uses metal and polymers to create some of the most exquisite mobile art in the world. Some structures are as tall as 25-feet high, and they are pretty mesmerizing to watch. 3 - Who dares wake me from slumber? You can sort of hear this giant yelling that from beneath the grass, can’t you? This giant man is called, and I translate – Ripped Up or Popped up. It’s the creation of Hungarian artist, Ervin Loranth Herve, and was a temporary installation at Budapest’s Szechnyi Square for a special art market fair that took place. 2 - Are you brave enough? One of Lithuania’s most celebrated statues, is the Black Ghost found in Klaipeda. Visit this statue on a dreary rainy day, and it will leave you a bit spooked for the rest of the day. Legend says if you befriend the statue, you will have fortune and riches to follow. 1 - Follow your art… As I said earlier – it’s amazing what people use to create art. Maurizio Savini uses chewing gum to create some very realistic sculptures, but he really doesn’t like it when people ask him if he chewed every piece! He has t assistants that melt the gum down, ready for his creative use.

Moscow Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Your trip to Moscow, Russia is bound to be a special one. From the multicolored spires of St. Basil’s Cathedral to the sturdy red walls of the Kremlin, there is much to see and do in this stunning city. Named after the Moskva River—which flows through the city—Moscow has long been at the forefront of the creative world. Tour Moscow to follow in the footsteps of Tolstoy and Chekhov, among others, and join in the sense of pride Russia feels for its literary tradition. Moscow has named a number of its parks and open spaces after its poets and authors, so take a break at the fountain in Pushkin Square, or rest beneath the leafy trees in Gorky Park. When you’ve gotten your fill of literary splendor, head to the Memorial Museum of Cosmonauts, where you can learn about the Soviet Union’s efforts to reach the stars and the epic space race that lasted from 1955 to 1972. Moscow is a city of creativity and innovation, but is also very much aware of its own history; as such, a haunting part of any Moscow sightseeing is a visit to the Fallen Monument Park. After the fall of the Soviet Union, countless statues and monuments were removed from their pedestals and moved to this park. Over the years, more modern artwork and sculptures have been added, turning the park into a strange, yet peaceful graveyard of former icons. What is your favorite part of Moscow?

St. Petersburg Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Four hundred miles west of Moscow is St. Petersburg, Russia. A striking city resting on the banks of the Neva River, St. Petersburg has long been a draw for lovers of architecture, as St. Petersburg tours often begin with the city's legendary structures. Enter a world of towering cathedrals, palaces, and gardens, many of them set down by the order of Peter the Great in the 18th century. As the decades passed, later members of Russian royalty added to the city's opulence by constructing additional marvels. Walk through the Palace Square, located in the heart of St. Petersburg and home of the Winter Palace, the sprawling home of Catherine the Great. Next, pay a visit to St. Isaac's Cathedral and its gold-plated dome, which glitters in the sunshine. If you walk to the top of its dome, you will be rewarded with astonishing views of the city. Continue your St. Petersburg sightseeing by taking a boat ride down the river to Peterhof Gardens & Palace. This gilded structure and its lush array of plant life was constructed to rival France's Palace of Versailles, and is a popular place for a quiet walk in nature or to reflect upon the engineering marvel of its 60 fountains, all of which flow continuously without the use of pumps. Spend your evening walking along Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg's main thoroughfare. Besides offering even more beautiful architecture to gaze upon, Nevsky Prospect is loaded with restaurants and boutiques. Enjoy a delicious meal, shop around for the perfect Russian souvenir, and plan the itinerary for your next day in this magnificent city. What was your favorite part of St. Petersburg?
