10 weird sculptures from all over the world

Art isn't always beautiful. It can be scandalous, rough and shocking. Sometimes it shows artist's quirks, spirit of the age and society. Art always was means of revolution. We have collected some of the most ambiguous works of art standing out with their mind-blowing look.

This well-known sculpture of Chen Wenling located in Beijing represents Wall Street. The person lifted by a bull is Bernard Madoff sentenced to 150 years in jail for the biggest financial fraud in the history of the USA.1

This huge sculpture of the swimmer is located on the bank of the river Thames in London. It is 14 meters long and 3 meters high. It has been constructed during the reality show "London Ink".

Underwater civilization, Mexico. This composition is called "Inertia". Looks familiar, isn't it?4

These shameless statues of two giant Buddhas were exhibited on a wall of the Chinese restaurant. Soon they will be destroyed because of mass protests and statements for insult of religious believers.5

Transparent people, France


These "holed" sculptures of Bruno Catalano are one of the most spectacular and unpleasant statues in France. They are called "Les Voyagers". Admittedly, the look of these statues isn't encouraging for the ordinary office worker passing every day by. But maybe someday they will inspire someone to throw this damned bag away and to start living life already.6

Walk into the sky, the USA


Office workers go to the sky on a vertical column in Pittsburgh, the USA. It doesn't take a genius to see that this sculpture represents an infinite career ladder which you climb up life-long.7

The lady in a bathroom, Germany

This installation is constantly criticized by the authorities of Hamburg for the ridiculous look breaking an architectural ensemble of the city. But the 20-meter lady bathing in the city lake attracts crowds of the tourists wishing to look at her closer. The project under the name "Die Badende" (Bather) is created within the advertizing campaign of the British firm Soap & Glory.8

Nausea fountains, London


It is impossible not to notice these statues. This project shows how shocking can be the true art. Would you risk drinking water from the cooler made in similar design?9

Traffic light tree, London

The French sculptor Pierre Vivant has constructed this tree on the place of the real one that has died from environmental pollution. It is located in the financial quarter of London. Perhaps, only such trees will remain on our planet in several centuries.10

Nation to Itself Forever, Prague

Did you think those London fountains were the most shocking? Then look at this statue on a roof of National Theatre in Prague by David Černý. The statue occasionally sprays water all over passers-by.11
