When You See His Gravity-Defying Completed Artwork, You’ll Likely Just Stare in Astonishment

It’s hard to imagine the art Michael Grab creates is real.

Drawing on what must be an incredible measure of patience, Grab stacks rocks in various ways, forming art pieces that appear to defy the laws of physics.

According to the statement posted to his Facebook page, he stacks the rocks not only to create impressive pieces of art, but also as  a way to meditate.

“Over the past few years of practicing rock balance, simple curiosity has evolved into therapeutic ritual, ultimately nurturing meditative presence, mental well-being, and artistry of design,” he wrote.  “Alongside the art, setting rocks into balance has also become a way of showing appreciation, offering thanksgiving, and inducing meditation.”
