You’ve Never Seen Sculptures Like These Beauties Before!

 British artist Henry Moore once said, “Sculpture is an art of the open air.” Sculptures can be created using any element in the world. Pulled together from natural or manmade materials, these statuesque symbols range from mobiles like those made by Alexander Calder to figures sculpted from snow and ice. There is no limit to what can be created by the human hand with a little bit of ingenuity.

Cities across the world incorporate statues to complement the cityscape, and these art pieces stand tall at every major junction. However, marble and stone aren’t the only things they can be made with. These 20 striking sculptures found all across the planet are made from the oddest, most unconventional materials.
