The Figure

We have seen representations of the human figure dating back from as early as the paleolithic times, 40,000 years ago. Through the ages, the human figure continued to be used by artists to depict the human condition, spirituality, politics, religion, the supernatural, the meaning of life, joy, and anguish. Today whether in sculpture or the ceramic arts, the human figure remains a crucial subject matter of great importance that we all can relate to.
