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.

“Stones dream of shapes they might become. The sculptor has but to listen.”
“Let the stone be what it wants to be. You can’t control everything, you know.”
“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.”
“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.”
“You are God’s chisel. It is you He uses to create masterpieces.”
‘I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
