Synopsis

Sculpture by Richard Spilsbury

Featuring six sculptures from around the world, this book explores different types of story, from religious tale in the statue of Hindu god Ganesh to political recount in the Marine Corps War Memorial. Each sculpture is looked at in detail, and a more general introduction to the medium provides historical context. Step-by-step projects show children how to create their own masterpieces, using the techniques of the art form. Learn how to sculpt figures and make your own totem pole! The Stories in Art series explores the narratives told through different art mediums. A great introduction to the history of art for children at Key Stage 2.
