15 Breathtaking Sculptures That Messed With Our Perception

We invite you on a wonderful journey around the globe in search of the most surreal, awe-inspiring sculptures that defy the laws of nature!


This Venice Biennale sculpture by Lorenzo Quinn depicts dramatic hands emerging from the Grand Canal and trying to save Venice from drowning. The sculpture was meant to attract more attention to the problem of climate change.

Sculptures of the series Heart of Trees by Jaume Plensa might be seen in different cities of the world. Bronze figures which are slightly larger than life-size embrace trees with their arms and legs. Don’t they look surreal?



The Kelpies in Falkirk, Scotland are the most massive equine sculptures in the world. What an incredible view it is at night when the sculptures are lit!

  1. I was not sure if love spell could help but here is my story:
    I have been in a relationship with my then ex (we broke up for 3 months) since 2015. It was a happy and very active relationship with lots of fun and travelling. We love each other endlessly and we shared a lot. His family was my family and my family his.

    Few months back he started being controlling and possessive:
    I told him that I don’t feel comfortable with his new behavior, he apologized and promised to work on himself. But he failed on his promises, this time it escalated to him being manipulative. He accuses me of cheating on him at work. Eventually, I’ll be the one apologizing for something I didn’t do. I broke up when I couldn’t take it any longer.

    I got a stranger email address from a website that changed my story:
    I asked the stranger for help to fix my relationship, I told him that my problem was that I am still in love with this guy and I know he loves me too but he has a huge ego, his ego is enormous. I know I am the one who did the breaking up but my heart was hoping for him to say to me ‘I’m sorry baby, I apologize for how I have made you feel these past years, I will seek help and fix myself so that we can fix us’

    The stranger is Dr. Wakina, his email; dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
    Dr. Wakina showered his healing powers to us through his powerful love spell. Our relationship was fixed as he provided the much-needed help to us. Our destiny was changed for good.
