Importance Of Women Sculpture

Women has always been fascinated in his image and likeness. Portrait sculpture touches all of us simply because it brings us face to face with women from the past and preserves the features, expression, clothing and jewellery of a time now gone.

We can take a look at the outfits, the face of beauties from the past, and the true likeness of heroes who have been immortalised in stone or precious metal. Sculptures provide a good ethnographic record of our heritage and never cease to engage us because of the human interest. You can see the vast range of classic statue of women online.

Even our currency bears the effect of the portrait sculptor, with heads usually appearing on coins. Some of the oldest known portrait sculptures are of Egyptians and they are seen on tombs, but bronze sculptures have been found in the tombs of Chinese emperors, in Pompeii and around Mesopotamia.

Very early statues ended up being produced from clay and natural stone, but the breakthrough discovery of the power to smelt metal led to bronze becoming a favorite medium. The Industrial revolution made it possible for foundries to spring up all over the place and everyday people desired to get their own likeness cast in metal.
