Whether it is the ancient statues of Greeks athletes or the Romans showing statesman and leaders as God or figurines of people and animals found in the ruins of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro —it is difficult to think about history without sculptures. A sculptor is precious because we can interact with it –like our dolls and toy planes and the rocks we collected from sea-shores and because it may still be there even after we are gone.
Sculpting allows you to best explore the relationship of shape and light, different material and textures, allowing you to experience your creation. It helps you develop the visual, perceptual, and conceptual skills allowing you to communicate with your immediate society and also with many future generations.
Quote: “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
Michelangelo, Italian Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art.
