The strangest statues in the world?
Artists are used to surprising us, to astonishing us, and some dare to go beyond the limits of the conventional to provoke. But most of the time, sculptors and artists remain original to create creative statues, while others rely on gigantism to impress with monumental statues.
Often, if not always, artists are inspired by a subject, a legend, or fairy tales, but here, we must admit that we don't know what went through the minds of the authors of these really bizarre statues. Extraordinarily strange, one even wonders if they still exist for some of them?
You'll see that art reaches new heights when it comes to the absurd, or genius, we don't know:
