Public artworks like paintings, structures and sculptures serve various purposes to either covey strong messages to whoever sees it or attract people to visit a particular place where it is mounted.
Whatever the reason behind, these works could stop anyone from walking and eventually give him some thoughts to ponder of why and how or what.
If you travel around the world, you could definitely see different arts displayed at public that could surprise you with the artistic taste—that doesn’t except the sculptures that you could see.
And of all the sculptures, we have collected photos of various crafts which may look oddly satisfying to you. However, the story behind each is even more gratifying.
