22 Modern Sculptures That Stun With How Original and Bold They Are

Modern sculptures are made to surprise people and change their impressions and ideas about what art is. A Michelangelo of the 21 century should be able to deceive gravity, discover new biological laws, make up new colors, and inspire us to dream about new things. We decided to show you a few works of such masters.
