This piece has a very neat and polished texture that makes it appear to look as if it was made from wood. Based on the shape and the look of this piece, i would assume that this was made in present time. I think the piece is shaped like an actual vortex. This piece i think is highly successful. The artist did a great job in smoothing out the piece and giving it and great and intriguing form and color.
Laocoön and His Sons
This sculpture has incredible detailing in the facial features and the body features. I think this piece looks quite dated because of the cracks on the piece. The artist clearly did a great job in making this piece come to life and actually appear to look realistic. This sculpture was based off a play, that is now lost but still is a reminder and visual dedicated to the lost play and is placed in a museum in Rome. The sculpture is incredibly successful to me because of the great detail he carved into the marble.
