50 Unique Sculptures

I love sculptures, classical, modern, miniature, monumental, and most of all those with a unique perspective: Witty or serious. Ageless or temporary. Solitary or interactive, especially interactive – I love sculptures that invite us in, directly or indirectly, that make us a part of their composition. Here are 50 pieces that do just that.

~Thurin-Jon

“Let the stone be what it wants to be. You can’t control everything, you know.”
~Danika Stone

“If water could be shaped like clay, then swimming ducks would be master sculptors. If I were to commission a statue of myself, I’d hire splashing ducks at play.”
~Jarod Kintz

“Artists are low key astronauts. Instead of going to the moon, they sit back in their studio and make the moon.”
~Michael Bassey Johnson

“Your life is a sculpture, every day chip away.”
~J.R. Rim

“You are God’s chisel. It is you He uses to create masterpieces.”
~Matshona Dhliwayo

‘I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

    Some amazing, some creepy but I especially like the last one. I would love to know what our forefathers think of what we have done with their dream.

    That’s the one! Isn’t it FAB? Can you imagine walking down the road and seeing these four directly ahead of you? Get the camera ready! Versions of this sculpture and many different ones can be see all over the world from Liverpool to Cuba to Texas and many points in between. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was one on the moon! 🌝 Totally deserving. It’s only love! ✌🏼❤️ 🪲 🪲 🪲 🪲

    That first one is hard to beat, but then the little boy trying to help the bronze bunny is equally charming. For beauty, I’d vote for the amazing topiaries, and for humor: the three surfin’ mamas. You collected such a plethora of medium and subject matter with these statues. Mitch. Great fun to peruse on a Saturday afternoon!
