If you are one of those people who love sculptures, then this article is something for you. Those who study history and art are somewhere or the other aware of these beautiful sculptures. Even those who have read books by Dan Brown know something or the other about them. To explain what sculptures are would be a stupidity. They probably are one of the finest forms of art. These beautiful creations by certain artists are so lifelike and beautiful that for a moment, you would feel that they are not real.
France, Italy and even Germany are some of the countries full of such beauties. Sculptures by Auguste Rodin or Pietro Canonica or Giovanni Bernini are simply the best. These used to adorn palaces, temples, cemeteries and what not. These beautiful sculptures are the proof of the rich heritage we have. Also, how art can get unrealistic at times. The Rape of Proserpina and The Rape of Polyxena are literally two of the oldest artifacts ever made. It would be wrong to even talk about them or describe their beauty in words when visuals can easily portray their true nature.
