Throughout the history of art, sculptors have tried a variety of media. Although casting bronze, woodcarving, and clay burning produces a lasting impression, none of the materials can be as fascinating as marble. Marble art is common in both ancient and contemporary art, and is prominent in many major art movements and is one of the most famous sculptures in the world. Here, we trace the evolution of lasting art forms, showcase the history of practice and prove its eternal popularity.
