Some modern sculptures are just as great as the ones that were created during ancient times. They break the stereotypes, trick gravity, and inspire us to do great things. The artists who create these masterpieces are amazing because they manage to turn stubborn materials into art. And looking at their creations brings pure joy.
Enlighten has collected some photos of sculptures from all over the world that show how rich the human imagination can be.
