Sinking Sculpture Illusions

Lately I've been noticing a growing, or should I say sinking, trend. Artists have created fantastic illusions consisting of sculptures that look as if they're sinking into the ground! Whether it's Sue and Peter Hill who made the magnificent Mud Maid at the Lost Gardens of Heligan, UK (see above) or Banky who transforms an ordinary row of orange traffic cones into an extraordinary work of art, one thing is certain. These pieces make us do a double-take!
