Sculpture Saturday

Modern busts at the Shandong Art Museum

Saturday Sculpture was hosted by the Mind over Memory blogger but now that her schedule with work and school is so full she decided to stop hosting.

To join in, what you need to do is:

  1. Share a photo of a sculpture
  2. Link or ping back here to Ruined for Life because Mind over Memory’s has had to stop hosting. Between a new graduate program and work, she’s super busy.

It’s a fun challenge, which lets you be as imaginative as you like. Give it a try.

Sculpture Saturday

demolished

Yungang Caves, China

Saturday Sculpture is hosted by the Mind over Memory blogger, I’ve chosen a sculpture from the Yungang Caves in Shanxi China. There were 51,000 carvings in 251 caves along a river. Buddhist monks carved these magnificent works from 460 – 520 AD. Sadly, many like the one above were vandalized by Maoists during the Cultural Revolution. Bandits also stole parts (e.g. hands or heads they chopped off) on the black market. Some vandals sprayed Communist slogans others lopped off heads or other parts of the holy sculptures.

What kind of hooligan desecrates art that’s over 1800 years old for a political ideology?

Plus les choses changent, plus elles restent les mêmes.

The difference, I see between now and the Cultural Revolution is that it’s not that hard to petition the government to change. Speak out at a city council meeting. Write a letter to the editor. I bet you’d get change if you want it.
