‘’I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
History

The above famous quote attributed to Michelangelo, truly encapsulates our feeling regarding statuary. Carving of statuary has been around for many years. Man has been intrigued with creating carvings of important people and events for centuries. It tells a story about who we are and where we came from. Statuary can serve as an aid to people’s prayer and as a thought provoking reminder of the heros and figures that came before us. The Löwenmensch figurine from the Alps in southern Germany is one of the oldest known statues in the world and is arguably tens of thousands of years old. Egyptian statues of kings and deities have existed since the old egyptian kingdoms. The oldest statues in Rome are statue of Ceres, which was made in bronze, and Diana.
