Sculpting is a powerful form of art. Earlier, sculptures were used to represent the Gods. In fact, they have become an important form of expression for the Greek people. There are many monuments but a few stand out from the rest due to their creativity and the deep meaning left by the artist.
5 Fun Facts has compiled some of the finest works from around the world. We have a special sculpture in the bonus too.
