40 Unusual and Creative Statue and Sculpture Art

Around the world you can find monuments, statues and sculptures displayed in public parks and other places of interests. These public artworks are in most cases, figures of heroes and distinguished individuals who have significant contributions to the country or to the locality. Inasmuch as these statue and sculpture art objects are nothing but ordinary memorial structures, most of them are depicted in a formal and in the most stately fashion. There are however, statue and sculpture art objects which are creatively designed  that you would swear, their concept or idea never crossed your mind. This of course does not only refer to statues and sculptures of heroes and statesmen but in large part, to other things like animals and inanimate objects. Yes, in cities around the world, you can find unusual statue and sculpture art objects aside from the usual display of distinguished individuals revered by the community.
