The art of sculpture – cartoon

Sculpture already in the stone cartoon

The sculpture is already in the stone, trapped.

A cartoon about the concept sometimes voiced by sculptors, that when they are working with a block of stone or wood the sculpture is already inside the block, and it’s the sculptor’s task to release it.
In the cartoon the sculptor is working on a huge block of stone, maybe marble or granite, which he gradually chips away to reveal the sculpture that is trapped inside it.
The sculpture turns out to be a very small work.
