Sculpture is known to be an amazing form of art; it is the visual art that functions in three different dimensions, creating a touchable piece of art by carving and modeling in either metal, ceramic, stone or even wood. Today, sculptures use a wider range of materials. Most of the ancient sculptures that survived are mostly made of stone rather than the other delicate materials; however, some other vintage ones in different materials still exist, they are incomplete and cannot promise to survive for longer while those that were made of wood had vanished almost completely, but those sculptures that have not worn away with time exist in the ancient Mediterranean civilizations, India and China, as well as many in South America and Africa.
This form of art flourished in ancient Greece, for Greece is the place where great masterpieces and works of art were originally created. The art of sculpture began taking a more religious route and it was known as the Gothic Sculpture, but later, it evolved from being religious to just express religious motifs and it remains so until the recent times with the addition of expressing politics too. By all means, it is a form of art that still has a lot of lovers and passionate people who have taken it as a career and became professional sculptors.
