Sculpture, the art or practice of shaping figures or designs, is a tradition as old as time. In Western culture, its use can be traced back to Ancient Greece, though most sculpture began thanks to religious traditions. One of the oldest and most famous sculptures, even today, is the Great Sphinx in Egypt. Giant sculptures such as the Sphinx were created to impress a ruler - the king or queen or, in many cases, the gods.This list is full of wonderful, amazing, impressive, and interesting statues.
