World’s Most Expensive Sculptures

Sculpture is the extend or expand of a visual art that performs in three dimensions. We’re all used to seeing statues of national heroes pointing the North or South and Greek, Egyptian Gods. However, some current artists and others less so, have reached a revolution in sphere of the sculptures by greatly generating totally new and innovative designs.

These works are the imprint of historical events and characters, but also the voice of men & women who were not important but forgotten. I wish someday will do the sculpture of “two lazy penguins” in the future, but till then, let’s enjoy the most expensive sculptures in the world.
