Art is the spice of the world. Without art in its many different forms, life would be boring and dull. When you go to a new place, you inevitably admire the sculptures, statues, and monuments among other things. All of them have special stories and meanings behind them, and that is what makes them even more interesting. Moreover, sculptures are creative designs that are aesthetically pleasing, making the cities much more fun to visit. There are countless of sculptures made and displayed in the world, but we at Salanora will present some of the most incredible-looking ones ever made!
Les Voyageurs by Bruno Catalano
This sculpture is one of the series of displays by Bruno Catalano in Marseilles, France. All of the sculptures are mesmerizingly beautiful and represent men and women who are travelers. There are different interpretations of these pieces of art. Some think that they are missing a part of themselves and they travel to find it. Others say the missing pieces are the parts that people lose when they travel around the world. That’s the beauty of art, everybody can look at the same object with different eyes.
Expansion by Paige Bradley
Located in New York, USA, this sculpture is hard not to hear about when you’re looking into the most incredible sculptures in the world. It is a bronze sculpture of a woman, with lighting effects from within. It looks like the woman is “breaking out of her shell”. Paige Brandley said that it’s about pushing the walls of the box that society has built for us. It’s captivating and powerful, touching many people that see it.
Freedom Sculpture by Zenos Frudakis
The creator of the sculpture said that he wanted this sculpture to speak to everybody regardless of their background because we all are familiar with the struggles for breaking free in one way or another. If you want to see the sculpture in real life, you should head to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Rain by Nazar Bilyk
This Ukrainian sculpture represents many things, but the most important one is the inevitable connection that man has with nature. On top of the man’s head, there is a big raindrop that can represent the inner dialogue that a man makes with himself when he is searching for answers. Another meaning is that the human figure relates to dry land that is absorbing water directly relating humans with Mother Nature.
Mustangs By Robert Glen
This majestic art piece consists of Mustang horses running through water, and it is located in Las Colinas, Texas. It was created to commemorate the wild mustangs that were brought in from Spain and played an important historical role in Texas. The horses represent the driven and unfettered lifestyles of the inhabitants of Texas in its early days.
Maman by Louise Bourgeois
This almost bizarre sculpture was created by the artist as an ode to her relationship with her mother which was loving, but also complicated. The artwork is supposed to represent the complicated relationships that children have with their parents. Louise felt like spiders are not only feared but also admired because they are protecting us from disease-carrying mosquitos.
