Sculpture: Vintage vs. Modern

Some of the most renowned pieces of art in the world consist of sculptures. The art of sculpting has been present in the world for hundreds of years and has progressed greatly since. What sets vintage sculptures apart from modern forms is typically what they are made of. During the primordial times, sculptures were typically made of ivory or clay. A few centuries laters, sandstone, and precious stones such as copper, gold and silver were employed. Yet, in the more recent years we are often seeing amazing sculptures made from glass, scrap and a also a more unique form know as the living sculpture.

The Metal Museum in Memphis, Tennessee displays a wide range of metal sculptures that are sure to take your breath away. Dale Chihuly, who is a renowned glass sculpture, displays his intricate forms of art in an array of galleries around the world included the Halcyon Gallery in London and the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona.


A living sculpture is a type of art that involves creating an art form made with living or recently harvested plants. The Mosaicultures Internationales Montreal 2013 displayed a vast variety of stunning living sculptures such as the 50-foot-tall rendition of Mother Earth.

If you plan on heading to a museum to witness some of the most beautiful sculptures in the world, both vintage and modern, it is important to dress to impress. The best way to do so is with a dress, such as the Pleated Dress with Chiffon Overlay Yoke, from Komarov Clothing.
