Sculptures: Why We Have Them

- - Sanny Tendilla

By John Mason

Since the day that we learned how to create tools to chop stones we also learn how to carve excellent photographs out of wood or marble.

Sculpturing is the most laboured art form because you have got to exert effort to shape the image that you want out of wood or a marble. Despite the lurching difficulty carving an image from a marble but why do some artists, those who even learn painting, still opt to make sculptures?

It is most possible that if they form an image out of hard material they can definitely paint it in a canvas. We humans have the sense of being a stickler we want to do things right in our own way in like fashion sculptures putting aside the complicatedness of their art works really liked to carve images because this only suggests that they can mold a life size look alike of their subject.

Considering that at the time where advanced technology isn't yet available there aren't any 3D photos and out of this world PC graphics therefore they must exploit materials available to them to convey the thoughts that they have.

The most renowned form of sculptures in the olden times are sculptures of folks. Artists in those times always wanted to copy the ideal beauty of the human body therefore nude sculptures are extremely popular back in those days. Later on the interest of the sculptures shifted from folks to animals and unreal characters like gargoyles. Orthodox artist's most likely wouldn't want to actually limit their sculptures to humans so they have manifested the universality of their art work by molding different kinds of sculptures. Sculptures today is again popular everywhere we decide to go to as sculptures are displayed like in parks, lodging places, bistros and even malls! Current day sculptures have been able to preserve this orthodox art form.
