Any piece of street art is created to illuminate and entertain the public in different ways. Sculptures are usually created with a historic significance in mind and are meant to act as a symbolic representation of a moment in time. Now, there is a unique trend developing around the world that involves creating bizarre and unique sculptures that are only created for artistic reasons. These sculptures are massive and unorthodox, and are truly a sight to behold for passerby’s in their respective cities.

This optical illusion can be seen in Aqualand, Spain and is called ‘The Magic Tap’. It appears as if the tap is floating in the air while water gushes through it, but a hollow pipe running through the exhibit gives this piece its powers of illusion.
