Looks interesting. Reverse image search gives me results for the Guatemala Stone Head, but I take it that they haven't figured out who is responisible for it?

 

Gives me something to look into, cheers.

Why should anyone care who doesn't want to change their monkey history in any way? And it is definitely unique. Since it was destroyed the history is again as they want it to be. Classic case of inferiority complex.

Cheers- This is exactly what I thought, it's like the The Colossus of Appennino Florence Italy above, they are to good to have been carved or water eroded.

I understand that people have created wonderous works of art over the centuries, especially in the way of sculptures.  But The Colossus of Appennino just doesn't sit right with me.  There appears to be more to this than someone just sculpting a work of art.

You may be right. Remember though,  the talent of the Italian sculptors.

Sometimes when I look at some of these sculptures, I can't help feeling there is more to some of these. They are so realistic.

They either have to be very talented or they had some clever machinery back in the day.

I agree but I think it was a whole different way of being. No major technological distractions. Real talent was more likely to be celebrated. As the worlds worst artist I can’t really comment on the skill needed.

Child labour laws have probably changed sculpting.

 

Take one of the best like Bernini for example, he created some of his best works in his 20s, but was apprenticed at 9-10, and was patronized by extreme wealth at 15. So he had years of the best mentorship, and with minimal distractions like you say. His father sculpted too.
