Designed by New Zealand artist David McCracken, this magnificent illusion stems from the seashore in Bondi, Australia and rises up into the heavens above. Depending on the atmosphere and weather conditions, the stairway appears to reach beyond the clouds into the celestial realms overhead. It's basically an M.C. Escher drawing in real life.
