The Sculpture Fanlisting
Hello there and welcome to Shape and Form, the Sculpture fanlisting. This fanlisting is part of audiohype & The Fanlistings Network (Arts and Design Category).
This fanlisting was last updated on 17th March 2017. There are currently 14 members (+ 0 pending). The newest member is Emma-Jane.
A fanlisting is a place for all fans of a particular show, movie, actor/actress, singer... to come together and build the biggest listing of people from all around the world who are fans of that subject. The Original Fanlistings Network lists nearly 30,000 fanlistings and has been online since 2001. I'd suggest you go there to find the links to other fanlistings you might be interested in joining!

Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions and one of the plastic arts. Durable sculptural processes originally used carving (the removal of material) and modelling (the addition of material, as clay), in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials but, since modernism, shifts in sculptural process led to an almost complete freedom of materials and process. A wide variety of materials may be worked by removal such as carving, assembled by welding or modelling, or molded, or cast.
Sculpture in stone survives far better than works of art in perishable materials, and often represents the majority of the surviving works (other than pottery) from ancient cultures, though conversely traditions of sculpture in wood may have vanished almost entirely. However, most ancient sculpture was brightly painted, and this has been lost.
Sculpture has been central in religious devotion in many cultures, and until recent centuries large sculptures, too expensive for private individuals to create, were usually an expression of religion or politics. Those cultures whose sculptures have survived in quantities include the cultures of the Ancient Mediterranean, India and China, as well as many in South America and Africa.
The Western tradition of sculpture began in Ancient Greece, and Greece is widely seen as producing great masterpieces in the classical period. During the Middle Ages, Gothic sculpture represented the agonies and passions of the Christian faith. The revival of classical models in the Renaissance produced famous sculptures such as Michelangelo's David. Modernist sculpture moved away from traditional processes and the emphasis on the depiction of the human body, with the making of constructed sculpture, and the presentation of found objects as finished art works.
