"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free." (Michelangelo). Sculpture is not just a building or environmental decoration material, it is an art work. Even with the new generation of high-tech machines, creativity is still required for a stunning sculpture. The sculptures, which were completed in a few hours with CNC machines today, used to take a long time for artists who worked finely with hand tools. But, most likely CNC machines are not looking for angels in the marble, they are just copying the picture you uploaded to the computer. In Stonecontact.com you can find all kinds of natural stone carved classic and abstract sculptures and busts at the best prices and directly from the factories or wholesalers, and you can even buy custom sculptures.
