Quote of the Day – 27.07.19

Everything is sculpture.
Any idea, any material without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture

Isamu Noguchi

In this week’s challenge, Frank from Dutch goes the Photo want us to capture some sculptures. Though I’m more a fan of painting, I still find sculptures fascinating. There are only a few materials on which painters can work on, but sculptors can work with nearly everything: from as hard as rocks to as soft as wax. Under the hand of these artists, even stones can have souls.
