Sculpture is a "Stairway to Heaven" Optical Illusion

New Zealand sculptor David McCracken created this "Stairway to Heaven"-inspired piece for the 2013 Sculpture by the Sea exhibit in Bondi, Australia. The welded aluminum piece, titled Diminish and Ascend, looks like an infinite stairway to the clouds - the effect, as you can clearly see, is fantastic!

Can you hear it now? Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know / Your stairway lies on the whispering wind? *guitar solo*
