8 Strange Sculptures You Won’t Believe

When most of us think of sculpture, we think of cool, well-lit enclosed galleries, polished floors and glass cases where either a well-realized human form or some crazy angular abstract thing is on display. To the average human (aka me), sculpture is a weird, rather unapproachable art form for these reasons.

Thankfully, there are sculpture artists who think differently–who have literally thought outside the glass box and created amazingly weird (and funny) pieces of art that we can study, laugh at, and even interact with. In this way, they exemplify what it means to be creative: making stuff that no one else has attempted, just because no one else has done it and it sounds cool or funny. Here are some examples:

Looks like a pretty normal statue…except it’s hanging by one hand! How’d they do that?! (image source)

spilledcoffeefaces
This sculpture just speaks to me–it says “STARBUCKS.” (Also, you might be addicted to coffee if your whole face is made out of it…image source)

Awesome way to both celebrate music and a musical instrument, with this neon-blue outdoor guitar sculpture. (image source

Aww, this is cute–sculpture can be small and sweet (and edible), yet still bring happiness! (image source)

These slender metal sculptures out in the middle of nature are what I like to call “Earth decorations.” (image source)

flexiblepapersculptures
Stretch it, play with it (or prank somebody with it) and yet it retains its shape–nope, it’s not some sort of goop, it’s PAPER! (image source)

singingringingtree
Not only is this a really neat-looking tree made out of pipes, it also makes sounds when the wind blows! (Video/audio of this “Singing Ringing Tree” available by the following link–it sounds SO creepy and cool. image source)

And sometimes, sculpture doesn’t need to make people think deeply–it just needs to give them a “What the–LOL!!” reaction. (image source)
