Sculptures might be one of the oldest forms of art. Ancient people started to carve even before they learned to paint of design their dwellings. The earliest drawings were even carved on rocks.
For thousands of years, sculptures have filled many roles in human life. Statues were built to represent kings, later on to represent the gods of the Greeks and much later on to represent the leaders of the Romans.
Since the dawn of carving until the present day, sculptures have been largely monumental. Cities from all over the world have piece or two to flaunt, only proving that such form of art still greatly influences a region’s culture.
Prehistoric sculptures that still survive today show that the earliest creations of artists were not that beautifully made. However, as the world evolves, so does the tools for carving improve. From carved animals to guide hunters to honorary pieces to honor great soldiers, many artists today go beyond the normal, putting almost any idea into a block of wood.
