Fall of Rebel Angels :

This is an incredible work of art that I was fortunate enough to see in person, at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri . From what I can remember, it is carved entirely from a single piece of ivory.

Goddess of Depression

Goddess of Depression by Victor Nazarenko

Clouds and Rain. The mesmerizing effect of a ‘goddess’. It’s intimidating but emits a lot of sadness. Perhaps it pulls our attraction towards the negative emotion associated with rains. Depression. Nonetheless, Victor has been able to pull it off in such style. I love this sculpture for many reasons. One of them being the darkness in it.

Les Chuchoteuses is a bronze sculpture depicting three women completely absorbed in conversation.

In the Waters surrounding Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc an underwater world exists know as the MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte).

THE MANDELA MEMORIAL

One truly marvels at what man can create!
South African artist Marco Cianfanelli had constructed a monument to recognize the 50 year anniversary of  peace activist and politician Nelson Mandela’s capture by the apartheid  police in 1962. Mandela’s profile spans 50 steel columns  measuring 21.32 and 29.52 feet (6.5 and 9 meters) high, each anchored to  the concrete-covered ground. the shape and form of the sculpture are  representative of the leader’s 27 years behind bars for his efforts to  bring equal rights and governmental representation to the once racially  divided nation. the statue of the Nobel prize winner has been erected in Howick, a town located 56 miles (90 kilometers) south from the city of Durban in the countryside of the southernmost African country.Stand at a particular point – the columns come into focus and the image of Nelson Mandela can be seen!

Mask

  • An Australian hyperrealist sculptor working in the United Kingdom.
  • He uses silicone and mixed media to create shockingly lifelike figures.
  • The colors  and proportions are nearly perfect on every piece—but what makes them so uncanny is their massive scale.
  • Mueck’s sculptures faithfully reproduce the minute detail of the human  body, but play with scale to produce disconcertingly jarring visual images.
