Detail from El Greco's
Portrait of a Sculptor

Whether working with stone, wood, metal or other media, creating new forms from existing material - sculpting - has been a means of artistic expression since prehistoric times.

While ancient sculptures may not seem to have much in common with many of today's pieces, the artist as interpreter of shape and form is a theme that runs through the art form in all cultures.
