Rethinking Symbolism

A symbol stands for an idea. A statue is a symbolic interpretation of an idea.

A single piece can be more predominant than the rest. While some cultures have their own sculpture myths, some disregard sculptures as mere work of art.

For me, these postures and gestures all carry different symbolism.

We typically experience classic works of art in a museum but a classic work of art can also be found in books.
