An open invitation to the public of all ages to know what is sculpture and its tools, raw materials, origins and its first reference where sculpture began as the first language of man to communicate with himself, his society and with nature. Sculpture is always closer to human nature and human image, that’s why the human being depicts the natural objects trying to embody these objects to communicate with them and understand them. Accordingly, sculpture has been closely linked to architecture where the humans built their first buildings including houses, temples, churches and mosques, tombs and even coffins. It is the human’s guide and the language of communication with God and with themselves even after their death. Sculpture has also been found in public places and in large sizes as a language and an aesthetic and philosophical message addressed to society as a whole. So I see in sculpture a great value in understanding nature and life. Therefore, the workshop introduces some basic concepts and principles in the field of sculpture.
