The most enduring and, arguably, the greatest form of fine art known to man, sculpture has played a major role in the evolution of civilizations over time. Traditional sculpture had four main defining characteristics. It was the only three-dimensional art form. It was representational. It was viewed as an art of solid form. And lastly traditional sculptors used only two main techniques: carving or modelling. However, the modern era art of sculpture is no longer restricted by traditional sculptural concepts, materials or methods. Modern day art is continuously evolving and sculpture is still the leading method of expressing and commemorating people and events.
