Dutch artist Elisabet Stienstra has created the Virgins of Apeldoorn, a series of three bronze statues of girls that appear to be floating over a park. When seen together, the bronze sculptures almost appear to be a sequential series of a girl turning over in her sleep. Not only is their the awkward moment for the passer-by to see underneath the girl's clothing, which to us seems intentional no matter how you slice it, the works really do appear to float. Stunning stuff. (via)
