The Floating Faucet
If you ever find yourself in Bahia de Cadiz, Spain, you may see one of these mind-boggling optical illusions, the Magic Tap Fountain of Aqualand. How is it even possible that a large sculpture such as this has flowing water? What isn’t seen to the naked eye is that within the flowing water is a pipe. The structure is built around that pipe. This is not the same optical illusion as the hollow tree with a camouflaged foundation.
There is a home in Oxford, UK, that has what looks to be a shark through their roof. This house for the last 20 years has attracted tourists to gawk at this bizarre image. A local radio host commissioned the sculpture. The sculpture stands at 25 feet and is made with fiberglass. What inspired this unique form of art? Homeowner Bill Heine wanted to pay homage to the 41st anniversary of the Nagasaki bomb drop. The shark is to symbolize the chaos that comes from a bomb drop.
