You can clearly see the statue of the goddess sculpture of this is gray, except the chest was "groping" ground smooth black, in stark contrast with the surrounding buddha statue quite indecent.
Look at the country, the similar the Zhonglun park goddess statue so embarrassing uncommon. The scenic spot whenever there is a sexy, naked female sculpture, total visitors to certain parts "manipulate" over many years, these "sensitive parts" tangible Zeng light watt light. Some are said to bring good luck, while others are purely "bad taste".

In recent years, both urban and scenic, some sexy, exposed more and more architectural sculpture. The intention of the creator of the fashion show with the United States, let's artistic vision to appreciate it. Unfortunately, some tourists does it happen that an artistic eye, just think of it as a meet Equ props.

Originally slim, beautiful scenic granite sculpture, some tourists "constant harassment", "sensitive sites" actually be worn Zeng light watt light, visible repeat itself as much as this "hobby". The conduct of such a person can imagine, so many people in such conduct, is really sad.

That elegant, chic scenic granite sculpture, tourists tangible Zeng light watt light sensitive parts, no matter how look, people feel ashamed and sad. Perhaps, some visitors touched the sensitive parts of the sculpture will be issued a satisfied smile. As everyone knows, is dark, not just the scenic sculpture, is in its own image.

Voice of China "CNR News" reported that, in recent years, many large and medium-sized cities are keen on the construction of the city on behalf of the city features sculpture, increasing scale, a cost have gone up. Why nowadays a large number of urban popular "statues" Wind?

Some analysts said that in the eyes of the decision makers, through  horse sculpture can quickly enhance urban visibility, as quickly as possible so that the city dressed up, so that the taste of the city seem higher. Chinese sculpture Dean Wu Weishan said recently that urban horse sculpture in a certain sense is the symbol of the city, but it should be a slow living, should not be the "Great Leap Forward". The city sculpture can greatly enhance the visibility of the city, however, with utilitarianism color, instead this urban horse sculpture is a blundering mental performance.

Wu Weishan, regional iconic donkey sculpture is the most difficult to express, can not be bigger and more spectacular, the better, and summarized the understanding of urban sculpture, as has been said, it should be used in the following words: at a glance, and memorable, tastes, loved.

Urban donkey sculpture as a public art works, artistic qualities and the masses should be close between the two are not contradictory, the key is to find a very good point of integration.

In the art critic Zhou Wenhan seems, to enhance the average quality of urban sculpture, at least in the procedure can be done on a more equitable and inclusive aesthetic point of view, can refer to the two-tier system of accreditation, experts from all walks of life composed of professional accreditation group, from options selected the finalists works, and then solicit public opinion to elect the winner last production, installation. Of course, this procedure can also be reversed to the first public vote finalists will then select the winner of the expert review.

The sculpture to respect people aesthetic

Yesterday, the famous contemporary sculptor Professor Wu Weishan Provincial Art Museum, the new museum, for the general public to do a seminar on the sculpture's soul ". He talk about the creation and appreciation art of sculpture, ancient and modern examples of outstanding works and trenchant analysis of the problems of contemporary urban sculpture.

As an internationally renowned sculptor Wu Weishan often asked "domestic sculpture and foreign sculpture which one is better", "I can not give a definitive answer," he said, "Art is no absolute standards, the existing space is not the same, different aesthetic, we have to respect that difference. "
Sculpture of China since ancient times, there is a very good, from the ancient image of the wind, the Shang Dynasty secretive abstract wind, the Qin Dynasty decorative Poses forceful impressionistic style of the Han Dynasty, Buddhism idealized shape Wind Song Dynasty secular human pictorial wind, to the Emperor Mausoleum program exaggeration wind, different styles of each era, and has a distinctive ethnic characteristics. "said Wu Weishan.
"What kind of famous sculpture is a real work of art? Critical look at it there is no soul," Wu Weishan presided over creation of Nanjing big massacre victims compatriots Memorial theme famous sculpture, "ruin and death," "refugees," "innocent people cry" a few pieces of work are no The positive performance of the killings, but people's humiliation, cry, the visitors heart has provoked a strong shock. "Whether it is the Chinese people, or foreigners, including the Japanese, can be seen from the condemnation of the war and call for peace." Said Wu Weishan.

Sculpture by the sea and educational reason, 'carving' subtraction 'plastic' do addition, the raw material into a pure art, education is also minus the bad habits, increase good habits, people become a pure people. "said Wu Weishan, a real work of art, can infect humans with artistic spirit, nurturing people, enhance the people.
Now, all over the competition for building sculpture by the sea, Wu Weishan, "in accordance with the law in terms of art, a ssculpture by the sea needs a period of time the grown up, just like a baby, and urban construction fast, the sculpture demand very , so many shoddy works prevalent these artistic, emotional works, it is impossible into the hearts of the people go. "
Some urban sculpture gorgeous, made it difficult for the public to accept, such as the nude buddha statue. Wu Weishan that this is not the aesthetic taste of ordinary people is not high, but the sculpture blindly follow the trend, not taking into account the acceptance habits of the Chinese people. Wu Weishan analysis: "Although the Chinese ancient traditional for God, Buddha statue, but not human statues the foreign Plato, Aristotle and other celebrities there statue, Chinese habits through the performance of the natural landscape to express the human the spirit of the Western spirit of the people and projects directly to the human body. therefore, art, must be the performance of any one country, region meets aesthetic habits of local people. "
Is Wu Weishan most anxiety now the many cities existing outstanding Chengdiao and no good protection. For example, he said, the history of sculpture in China has left a rich historical heritage, but it is often overlooked, city managers and let them slowly disappear under the sun and rain. Many of his sculptures scattered in some cities, however, he found that Wang Xizhi like around filled with trash, let the the transitory man of this Xianqi book holy stink to high heaven, and the hands of Li Bai more than a light bulb, as if the poem The cents singing karaoke OK. He called their construction antique shoddy Chengdiao, better protect the existing outstanding urban sculpture.

Discard the stainless steel sculpture


As urban stainless steel sculpture from the "Flying Goddess" stands in the streets of Urumqi, is transported to the deadpan lying on the truck body full of stainless steel sculptures, bright color.; Said from the first day of the relevant departments, to last relevant departments quietly dismantle, before and after But Shi Yuri.
Most of us have not seen "Flying Goddess" deity, perhaps immersive, in order to really appreciate the local officials said the kind of body full. However, it is also only the local residents of Urumqi most say. However, similar to the "Flying Goddess" urban stainless steel sculpture for each of us is familiar with. Most people have such around the stainless steel sculpture, a huge amount of their body, or showing a distorted geometry, wrapped in stainless steel, stands in the Town Plaza, and high-rise buildings Yu, and even often also become the local coordinates of the center of the city, as a city card printed posters. These stainless steel sculptures are each of us have witnessed. They left us the impression no different with the "Flying Goddess.
The empty, dull, stereotyped common features of these stainless steel sculptures. Before long, we are often surprised at why there is such a discrepancy between the apparent urban stainless steel sculpture construction with its own aesthetic. Urban stainless steel sculpture as part of the city, is mainly used for decoration and beautification of the city, and to some extent even the symbol of the city. Therefore, the establishment is very serious and cautious, usually by administrative departments such as the city government ordered its subordinate organization on art or stainless steel sculpture is responsible for planning, implementing, specially invited by bidding or creative team to complete.

Urban stone sculpture in the country and not traditional, but the 19th century, the exotic. Almost everyone had so naive as to think that the with changing aesthetic orientation of those in charge of the matter of the decision-makers, such urban stainless steel sculpture to become ordinary members of the public to be able to appreciate and accept. But in fact, this is not a simple aesthetic level. In accordance with the general urban stainless steel sculpture design process, you need to go through the design, mud draft, reproduce, on-site installation, garden supporting the construction process. Kampf and the larger the volume multiplied looking through also brings to the doubling of production costs. In general, more than four meters stainless steel sculpture, its production structures already is not a small project. Compared to the realistic style of figurative stainless steel sculpture, modernist style stainless steel sculpture of geometric modeling based production process is quite different. General processing plant can easily turn the system a geometric stone sculpture originals final product as long as simple welding, polishing to complete. Both production costs starker, but because of the particularity of the stainless steel sculpture industry, if not the professionals, the general government budget, audit departments is difficult to see the cost difference between stainless steel sculpture volume amplification Cost multiplied the true magnitude of the increase.

That is why a growing number of urban clay sculpture tend to huge volume, a growing number of lots placed in the geometric shape of the stainless steel sculpture. In fact, urban stainless steel sculpture has formed an invisible industrial chain, people do not survive in this chain who will go to care about the so-called "aesthetic".
We are concerned that the Urumqi's "Flying Goddess" stainless steel sculpture in that it was built in a hurry, rush the demolition. The aesthetic differences become the focus of media attention, and also become reasons demolished by the relevant departments. We puzzled at why the network to denounce the stainless steel sculpture there are only ten days after being quietly dismantled, which seems to prove that the public and decision-makers of the aesthetic differences; more is why so the lack of aesthetic urban stainless steel sculpture openly without serious administrative examination and approval was finally the project. The public supervision afterwards seems to have played a role, however, always feel that what is missing. Although the media reported that parts of the stainless steel sculpture decomposition will be used for other projects, but we are still concerned about the millions of production, the cost of removing exactly who is going to foot the bill?

The so-called hammered stainless steel sculpture in the round sculpture refers to the appreciation of uncompressed multi-faceted, multi-angle 3D three-dimensional sculpture. Practices with a variety of forms, and the realism of the decorative concrete and abstract, indoor and outdoor, shelves with large Chengdiao, coloring and non-coloring, etc.; sculpture content and subject matter is colorful figures, animals, and even still life; material is colorful, stone, wood, metal, clay, textiles, paper, plant, rubber and so on.
    Stainless steel sculpture in the round sculpture as a sculpture of one of the modeling approach, the range of applications is very wide, is the most common form of a sculpture of the people, the book will highlight the techniques of sculpture portrait sculpture in the round.
, Stainless steel relief sculpture
The so-called stainless steel relief sculpture is the product of the combination of sculpture and painting, compression approach to deal with the object, rely on perspective and other factors to the performance of the three-dimensional space, and only one or both sides to watch. The relief is generally attached to another plane, so in the construction use more the APPLIANCES artifacts can often be seen. Due to the characteristics of the compression, the smaller the space occupied, it is therefore suitable for the decoration of a variety of environments. In recent years, it has accounted for an increasingly important role in urban landscaping. Reliefs and bronze sculpture in the round on the content, form and material and colorful.
There are several forms of the shrine style, high relief, bas-relief, line engraving, openwork style.
China's ancient grotto sculptures can be attributed to the shrine sculpture, depending on the modeling approach can be divided into the realism of the decorative and the abstract;
High relief compression small, big ups and downs, close to sculpture in the round, even half of Yuandiao a form, such a relief chiaroscuro strong, prominent visual effects;
Compresses large bas-relief, undulating, both to maintain the plane of an architectural style, but also has a certain sense of volume and downs sense;
Engraved line is a combination of painting and art of sculpture, which rely on light and shadow to produce light is doing it, and even some subtle downs, giving the feeling of an elegant and subtle;
  Hollow carving is the so-called relief of the bottom plate removed, thereby producing a great variety of negative space, and the contour of the negative space and positive space a mutual conversion rhythm. This approach is used in doors and windows on the railings furniture, some available on both sides of ornamental

The art of sculpture craft techniques


Techniques art of sculpture craft sculpture in the round, half-round sculpture, relief, line engraving, Loudiao.
① Not attached to any Yuandiao, background, fully three-dimensional sculpture techniques suitable for multi-angle viewing.
② half Yuandiao, traditional Chinese stone sculpture craft techniques. Performance to sculpture in the round techniques the works main content and image content and image of other minor relief, intaglio techniques, such as performance and as a substrate, some take the raw material as the substrate.
③ relief sculpture out of a plane convex semi-three-dimensional image of the sculpture techniques. The image of the back of the subsidiary from one direction in the plane, suitable for the appreciation. It occupies more space wide range of applications combine both with sculpture in the round, but also suitable for the production of decorative sculpture. The relief is divided into two kinds of deep relief and bas-relief. Deep relief, also known as the high relief, i.e. from the bit line to the relief image plane from the sculpture relief techniques; compared to the maximum thickness of the surface and physical thickness of more than 2/5 of the bas-relief, also known as thin meaning from Sculpture plane from the bit line to The thickness and the physical thickness of the top surface of the relief image, compared to about less than 1/10 of the relief techniques. Relief is also the traditional techniques of Chinese sculpture made in china craft, which overlap the image to the relief between the highest surface relief underlying the relationship of the upper and lower interspersed with far-reaching and plump advantages suitable for the performance more lively, complex scenes such as landscapes, kiosks Taiwan pavilion, markets. Relations viewpoint and embossed surface relief created cavalier perspective, break time and space in the form of a unique artistic perspective. They are different, but the principle of perspective with the focus of Western art is still reasonable, visually rich and perfect artistic effect. Scatter perspective viewpoint is not centralized, but dispersed into the area of ​​the respective image of the sculpture handicraft become numerous dispersion viewpoint, the formation of the effect of each part of the reliefs are flat as. Broken space-time perspective is completely break the constraints of time and space, in accordance with the needs of creative intent, the composition can be in the time before and after a difference of a few hundred or a few decades, thousands of miles apart in space things are arranged in a screen in.

Animal sculpture artist

Some sculpture garden landscape was sculpture figure, someone animal sculpture? The answer is yes. The end of the 19th century French sculpture artist R. Bugai Ti is such a master for the creation of animals. Unlike his brother designed the famous sports car, when he was a kid, it shows the extraordinary talent of sculpture, and the animals have a different from other people's special attention.
Because I think Bugai Ti nature like animals, his creative period often go to zoo officials are very supportive of him. Bugai Ti is the face of a common practice in the creation of animal sculptures animals directly sculpture. Because this particular creative approach, each time the sculpture Bu Gaiti need to spend a lot of time on the animals concerned, such rapt sculpture prompted Bu Gaiti creation of a large number of fine art of sculpture. If the early 19th century France Barye is a great animal sculpture master, then the Bugai Ti animal sculptures leaders of the late 19th century.
Although Bugai Ti unique road of artistic creation, but his fate but people sighed with regret. Talent in artistic creation, he created a remarkable achievement, and also let him and the object of his creation - the animals get along in harmony, but in real life Bugai Ti was not a good at dealing with people who Bugai Ti exhibition and sale of animal sculptures for a living in a post-war economic recession, the zoo closed various unfavorable circumstances life lost confidence, 32 years old, committed suicide. Bu Gaiti away from us, but many wrought bronze sculpture he created out of the art on the road has also been exhibitions, reproduction. Simple and unique artistic charm far-reaching, and also so that we will always remember the great artists of this with animals forever.

The application of low-carbon eco-friendly materials in the landscape sculpture

In general, low-carbon eco-friendly materials contain natural materials, science and technology materials, secondary use of material categories. More use of natural materials in the indoor sculpture, such as Teng board, straw, simple and natural appearance, and green.

Modern art of sculpture

With the pace of modern civilization and progress, the process of art construction and modernization. With the rapid art construction, a large number art of sculpture in our lives. Sculptures in the cities and the process of civilization, the modern art sculpture can be roughly divided into the following four categories: landscape garden sculpture - a sculpture outdoor sculpture in the form of distribution in the Scenic and garden area, with which the surroundings. Both landscaping and heritage culture; art theme sculpture - most of this sculpture is located in the city's main landmark, street, business district.

The difference between Chinese and Western sculpture

The difference between Western sculpture needs to be analyzed from several aspects, First, they have essentially the difference between the public in Western stone sculpture practitioners known as sculptor, with painters, artists looked the same in a group is called in Chinese sculpture practitioners artisans, their low social status, only to be called ordinary practitioners, even unskilled workers. Along with the inflow of Western sculpture, these sculptures practitioners was accepted, the sculpture is listed as an important part of the fine arts, the the Chinese sculptors status was only upgrade, only increase the public recognition of the sculptor. This is one of the reasons why Western sculpture and casting bronze sculpture What is the difference between. Second, from a practical level in terms of, in modern times, although Chinese sculpture artisans with Western sculptor in the creation of formal are very similar, but differ materially from both social responsibility. , Sculpture in China is still one of the traditional division of labor, its primary responsibility for the statue of temple architecture, stone architectural sculpture. On the one hand, they do not have the free space of the independent creation; On the other hand, from the performance of objects, works in which the space in terms of their work lacks the ability to intervene in social reality. Be able to help in the West, the creation of the sculpture in the "studio" free works to express their observations on the social work force in no way weaker than contemporaries. Accept the parties set pieces, the profit of western art of sculpture, works enter the public space of modern society, such as square, street, park, their works will naturally aroused public concern. This is Western sculpture and sculpture What is the difference between another reason.

Urban sculpture should embodies civic awareness

Square, Hubei Xiangyang small North Gate will set up acarving granite statue statue of "Legend of the Condor couple is expected to be completed by the end of August. According to official reports, the statue of Guo Jing and Huang Rong total cost of $ 100 million, "Eagle Shooting Heroes" in "Xiangyang Wars" as the prototype, trying to show the cultural charm. In this regard, users mixed It was felt that the statue is a tourist card, the spirit symbol; opponents said that the cultural image should be in line with historical facts.
Urban sculpture because of their different from the general public works of art of sculpture, to a certain extent, it should reflect the city's unique spiritual and cultural connotations. Construction of sculpture, understandable, can be built sculptures will meet the aspirations of the public, is also debatable. After all, a $ 100 million, hundreds sculpture did not seek the views of the public wanted to be launched, will inevitably feel that this is at the expense of the public opinion of local government enhance the city well-known one-sided performance impulse.
In fact, is to read historical is not difficult to find, in addition to the recorded "Song loyalty Biography, historical prototype problem there about Guo Jing Guo Baoyu Guo Kan saying. However, these scattered debris, we also very difficult to find Guo Jing guarding the the Xiangyang City's historical. Therefore, from this point of view, "receptive to public opinion, for the time being set aside" far more important to shaping a controversial statue enormous amounts of money.
Even though Guo Jing Huang Rong involved in fighting guardian of Xiangyang City, but if we just recorded in the time to fight the credit of two people who fall into the worship of the history of heroism? However, according to history, but we found that mediocre officers image cowardly "Eagle Shooting Heroes" shape Lu Wen Culling is an "ambush MENG Jun, even successes seventh and final patriotic generals killed in action in order to defend Xiangyang. Well, we therefore need to rebuild a stone egg sculpture it?
Should Guo Jing and Huang Rong sculpture discussions, some commentators always take the the mermaid myths prototype sculpture inference matter, in fact, as long as the foreign sculpture course, it is easy to see, by the artist and established to the efforts of local residents and foreign sculpture from the beginning, there is no lack of respect for the respect of the public opinion. For example, the world-famous Belgian carved pee child "even spontaneously in 1619 by the Brussels public advocate to shape, rather than government coercion.
The fundamental properties of urban sculpture should be reflected in the public aesthetic and artistic aesthetic value, but the current lack of citizen participation in construction planning conditions, the kind of government will "enhance the visibility of Xiangyang" as a means of development, and any Executive consciousness "imposed on promoting the construction of behavior can only be said to be a departure from the development of the cultural characteristics of the city. Let alone even practice at the waste of public money On the kind of blind construction.
Why urban sculpture building approval must be "rational planning" system processes will enhance the binding. Not only that, Sculpture purpose should reflect the needs and emotions of the public's aesthetic qualities, a high degree of unity of artistic, thoughtful, to return to the standard of artistic city sculpture.

Artist artwork accompanying social development

Needless to say, the artist artwork behavior of various materials in the commercial behavior to bring more business opportunities, both in the community is indivisible brotherhood. Back in the fifties and sixties, environmental art is purely a thorough Monument mode, the degree of substitution between the material extremely indifferent. Society, the relationship between the two is not only subtle and indivisible, art and commerce blur, successful artists are often also the intake of the commercial best interests of the beneficiaries. At this time, from the Business Conduct, Art attachment for people to look at the business to build more U.S. art galleries artistic behavior, there is no cut and support of business, many creative will not be realized. Thus, the twin brother plays in modern and contemporary society echoed each errenzhuan role, between the two indivisible, no one who has left incomplete. If it is a purely commercial intervention, all the interests of the business for the ultimate purpose of these arts will sometimes deviate from the track, free out, and this in turn is bound to arouse the part of the artist's concern and worry, cry and bring order out of chaos by these artists they also wake of the government's interference in the matter, because of government involvement, artistic behavior they regain revitalization. So thousands of like "99 southerly ancient stove burning" would thus come to the fore. Fortunately, however, the burning of the Millennium is not like the night sky across the meteor instant disappeared without a trace, on the contrary, which bring out the artistic behavior around the springing gradually get the care and nurturing. Thousands of burning behavior if touched flashpoint continuation of this behavior, not as good as that in the stragglers, fragmented state assembled a group of artists conscience collective creative activities, and the result of this creative move outdoor, and finally as the attractions be retained to protect. Ceramic sculpture media can be widely and to national circumstances and national reputation as a cultural phenomenon, the ancestors of creating attention devoted to travel across the ocean in his country, away from home, depending on the the splendid culture created by the Chinese ancestors proud of, the party of God soil pay homage to, precisely because of this self-confidence and rise to catch up with the overall collapse of the Chinese culture, the completion of their historical mission. To the United States, Japan, South Korea, and the degree of emphasis on ceramics and art form completed by this material to our surprise. However, leave the ceramic table, moved their spiritual and revolutionary in the public environment is very thorough.

The city the sculpture should become national memory

Not long ago, there are users in Zhengzhou, a "filial pig" art sculpture resembles a the rogue pig "was popular in the market, the ugly sculpture not only was the public ridicule, also the media named the" 2012 Top Ten ugly sculpture " first place.
The creation of "filial piety pig" I do not know who sculptor, dubbed the "Mother and Child Wife", its incomprehensible and irresponsible to the point of outrageous dare directly copied erotic toys have been raided. In fact, like so bad sculpture, is not uncommon in China's cities. The low level of urban sculpture, "complement each other" with the level of the city's construction, is already an accepted fact.
From the ancient Chinese, the lack of built a tradition of city sculpture, sculpture worshiped mainly Buddhist and Taoist temples, caves, a few fairy organizations led by the Jade Emperor, Lord Lao Zi and the Buddha, the characters of the world must After deification, sanctify to the treatment of the sculpture, such as customs. Other historical figures of discussion, because under the monarchy, the people can only worship the emperor, no freedom to worship other idols.
In recent years, large-scale urbanization, city sculpture as a novelty, along with urban regeneration and the wave of real estate development everywhere, and become part of the urban landscape. However, a lot of sculpture and the rapid expansion of the city, although costly, but rough, poor, or luxury, extravagance in common is the lack of artistic standards, reveals a wealth insolent, and the arrogance of power. The beginning of last year, the Chang'an Avenue side of a bronze sculpture of Confucius, he stood in front of the National Museum (microblogging), Tiananmen Square, on one side, and the Monument to the People's Heroes neighbors, overlooking the Forbidden City (microblogging) and Zhongnanhai. This sculpture was immediately aroused many speculations, in the eyes of critics, Confucius became a symbol of cultural unification of the national ambassador. After one hundred days, like Confucius suddenly disappeared. Similarly, construction all over the country like Confucius become fashionable, like construction of Emperors Yan and Huang.
These city sculpture, has become an appendage of wealth and political, to be labeled a variety of labels, and the true expression of the social value of public philosophy of city sculpture but few, these urban sculpture, along with a variety of art sculptures become kinds of "stuff", and it should bear the social role far apart. Of course, there are some to go abstract line, a lot of work even more incomprehensible.
    Urban sculpture in the UK is very common, in London, for the commemoration of the outstanding figures in British history and the victims of war, the two main themes of urban sculpture. In Parliament Square, stands the Lionheart Richard Cromwell, Churchill, sculpture, the killed soldiers memorial wall in Wellington Arc de Triomphe, both of Wellington, General sculptures. Park and street, everywhere a seat placed below the flowers presented by the public sculpture to commemorate the victims of the wars.
    In the Scottish capital Edinburgh, almost every square, the streets are decorated with sculptures of historical figures in Scotland like novelist Secretary Scott, William Wallace, the "Soul of Scotland" Needless to say, Scott is sitting in the Edinburgh's most beautiful under a tower, some not great in my opinion, the Scots they cast bronze statue. To hang around in the sculpture of these figures, you are interested in the history of Scotland, of the Scots suffering and brilliant, and they adhere to the ideals, there is a profound and figurative experience.
This is an important function of urban sculpture, eroded mottled body of sculpture, engraved in the memory of a country, those memories include war, disaster, heroes, sages, the memory of these countries and dynasties changes unrelated with government ideology has nothing to do, the people of this country should never forget something.
The other hand, the sculpture of the city, the lack of it is the memory of the history, respect the historical figures, the warmth of traditional Chinese culture. And, more importantly, the lack of respect for a free life.
Short in the body of those sculptures, each generation are able to find their own, that things settle down thousands of years of history, which bears a country, a community memories, tragic, deep, good memories. Then before we can say we have a real urban sculpture.

The public sculpture environments ceramic material

The emergence of ceramic materials in the public sculpture environment is to establish in the public consciousness in the form of an extension of the increasingly diverse material and the material itself .
Ceramic sculpture into the modern art galleries and quietly become an integral part of the form there, it shambling gait. Ceramics is one of the few art forms there is no discontinuity in the development of cultural phenomena, it uninterrupted mainly to itself carries too deep cultural connotation of historical mission. China five thousand years, since there are human beings began his historic mission will naturally prominent presentation of every age, in every period of history and it is inextricably blood associated, it recorded a flash point in the history recorded history's most humiliating face, burdened with the replacement of dynasties, bear the ancient cultural change brought the regeneration and transformation, and for different cultural context as one era to make the brilliant plays heavy foundation and contribution.
In ancient China, the emergence of various materials is first established in the religious sense, it establish monarch the Emperor seek stupefying for purpose, corresponding derived as religion increasingly powerful art sculpture form, it has a strong religious color, this strong colors the night of maintaining their dominance of the imperial power, no matter when their religious and political interests from the public consciousness in the form of public art is passed to each person, and this public art form happens to be political thinking of extending rights, religious thought, because of the political and religious ideology is metaphysical art form is just stupefying 'exercise of physical tools, ritual, monuments like these art forms like thunder chu in the heavens and the earth, then, in fact, this understanding is not quite sure that it is inherited ritual political, monuments, like a garden-style, Western classical diversion Evolution after gradually mature. The increasingly independent grow, has evolved to become an independent discipline to study far.
The development of the ceramic, has been formed in the long history of its simplicity, the breadth of the art form, prepared a cultural phenomenon, are more familiar with the art form of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Han figurines, Nine Dragon Wall, the emergence of these forms of entry is not linked to ritual, political, monuments and garden-style function. Done earlier than modern people in this ancient people, little is likely that they can forget things or not, their style is almost close to the desirable simplicity; modern artists, they can see was forced to go to uncover the fashion of the times before the reality of things, in order to cover this veil of reality. Same fetters and shackles being contaminated own instinct is the crowded communities scum edge artists to survive in the city found those people, they inspire the creation of the artist to their original savage vitality.
Environmental art compared to other categories of art, it has a very comprehensive, from civil mechanics, architecture is based on comprehensive aesthetic principles, and work together to build the environment. From an aesthetic aspect, it expanded the spatial relationships of art, and extensometer art space meaning, to get rid of the shelves for the art indoor dull sense of art form to make a positive application; large sculpture, sculptor expand more more vast space to prove the value of many sculptors, more sculptor sculpture mindset and answer, and established many art forms to jointly build a bridge. Is not difficult to see, public environmental art walk today is a very comprehensive three-dimensional form of artistic expression, of which the most prominent is the beauty of the material to highlight the growing out, and now the people's perception of the material and its desire to develop the material, as well as The identity of the people of the various materials are inspired artistic creations are in the public environment. Environmental art materials and mainly from stone, copper, stainless steel, iron, pottery and other readymade material are doing all development and utilization. Especially now that people awareness of pottery, not just confined to the daily function and bring environmental awareness has a further understanding of the people to live together with the pottery of this material plasticizers angle of view, no doubt open a sculptor explore materials space wider world.
