Japanese Twitter user @thumb_tani (aka Tanu) has mastered the art of balance. He uses his keen sense of equilibrium to create small, fascinating sculptures from carefully-positioned coins. Although many of us have probably attempted this same sort of coin stacking, Tanu takes these arrangements to a whole newâ€”and totally epicâ€”level.
Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, heâ€™ll first build a strong base using staggered coins. Then, he does the seemingly impossible. Tanu stands the coins upright and places them edge-to-edge without the discs falling or even wobbling. From there, heâ€™ll sometimes stack even more coins (or other objects) on top. Itâ€™s a mesmerizing sight, but also one that youâ€™ll want to hold your breath for. The precarious sculptures look as though they could tumble at any moment.
