You Learned About The Sculptural Process Of Subtractive Carving From Stone We Co

You learned about the sculptural process of subtractive carving from stone. We considered Michelangelo’s Awakening Slave as an artistic illustration of the physical act of carving. We also briefly touched upon how Awakening Slave possibly represents the act of creation—maybe even god-like creation—in that Michelangelo was able to seemingly turn stone into flesh.

You will now pretend to be Michelangelo and compose a discussion board thread that mimics a first-person journal entry. Your thread/journal entry will elaborate on your (Michelangelo’s) artistic process (carving) and your thoughts regarding the symbolism of “unfinished” sculptures like Awakening Slave.
