Thought behind the thought
I am ... this, that, many things at the same time. That is what I think I am. And I will make my choices, decide my path and write my own destiny.
And how do I portray myself? If I am a poet, I show my self through words and I use brush strokes if I am a painter! A sculptor though, can portray his self-image through many materials, like these amazing self sculptures done by different artists.
Every material that is used for sculpture making has its own advantages and challenges. Each allows you a totally different form of expression, and one may choose according to the image one wants to create and project.
