Creative Sculptures From Around The World

Check these most inspiring and creative statues from around the world :)

Expansion by Paige Bradley, New York, USA

"So, literally, I took a perfectly good (wax) sculpture– a piece I had sculpted with precision over several months– an image of a woman meditating in the lotus position, and just dropped it on the floor. I destroyed what I made. I was letting it all go. It was scary. It shattered into so many pieces. My first feeling was, “what have I done?!” Then, I trusted it would all come together like I envisioned."

"We cast all the pieces in bronze and assembled the pieces so they floated apart from one another. Then I brought in a lighting specialist and we built a crazy lighting system to make it glow from within."

Break Through From Your Mold by Zenos Frudakis, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

"I wanted to create a sculpture almost anyone, regardless of their background, could look at and instantly recognize that it is about the idea of struggling to break free. This sculpture is about the struggle for achievement of freedom through the creative process."

"Although there are four figures represented, the work is really one figure moving from left to right. The composition develops from left to right beginning with a kind of mummy/death like captive figure locked into its background. In the second frame, the figure, reminiscent of Michaelangelo’s Rebellious Slave, begins to stir and struggle to escape. The figure in the third frame has torn himself from the wall that held him captive and is stepping out, reaching for freedom. In the fourth frame, the figure is entirely free, victorious, arms outstretched, completely away from the wall and from the grave space he left behind. He evokes an escape from his own mortality."

"In the end, this sculpture is a statement about the artist’s attempt to free himself from the constraints of mortality through a long lasting creative form."

The Headington Shark by John Buckley, Oxford, UK

The Headington Shark is a rooftop sculpture at 2 New High Street, Headington, Oxford, England, depicting a 400kg, 25 feet long shark embedded head-first in the roof of a house.

"The shark was to express someone feeling totally impotent and ripping a hole in their roof out of a sense of impotence and anger and desperation…. It is saying something about CND, nuclear power, Chernobyl and Nagasaki."
