Ancient sculpture or statue art
Sculpture has been a major art form for millennia, undoubtedly primarily by virtue of its ability, often captivating, to represent reality. Figurative and realistic, classical sculpture has represented the human form through different perspectives: full length or as a bust. Often, figure sculptures derived their value from the architectural composition they were integrated into, or from the mythological or religious figures they embodied.
Contemporary artists have freed sculpture from its sacred or ritual functions in two ways: by placing it in the abstract camp, contemporary sculptors reaffirmed sculpture’s intrinsic value. Those who chose to continue on a figurative route, gave statues a completely different meaning... like a Pygmalion sculpting a female figure sculpture, that Ovid wrote of: "We could think she was alive... so long as art hides behind a force of art.”
Whether a collection or a decorative item, according to the buyer’s valuation, contemporary sculptures leave the exhibition space to be in a house.

Figure sculptures at Artistics
The poetic world of the French sculptress, Marine de Soos, is filled with realistic and natural figure sculptures, taken from small imaginary or real moments of eternity. Bearing the influence of years spent in Africa and Asia, these bronze sculptures offer an unprecedented point of view on general and emotional subjects such as motherhood and the memories of a time gone by. Made in a figurative style, these figure sculptures by Marine de Soos invite contemplation. From a large-sized sculpture to a statuette, the artist offers tall ornaments for an outside setting and are also perfect ornaments for an interior.
On another side, Cécile Raynal produces portraits of people she meets during her time staying in unique settings, often isolated and on the margins of society. Cécile Raynal’s figure sculptures are in clay and have an expressiveness that seems to go beyond their stillness, entrusting us with their precious life stories.
