Many classical Greek and Roman sculptors sought to depict all forms as perfect, tending to stylise and correct imperfections in their studies of their subjects. Contemporary sculptors, however, have often moved in the opposite direction seeking to display the flaws and inadequacies of their subjects, especially the struggle of humanity to find stability and harmony. A few examples are Jake and Dinos Chapman’s The Disasters of War, Maman by Louise Bourgeois and Marc Quinn’s portraits of Alison Lapper and John E. Sulston. Some carvers seek out a certain diseased wood called spalted timber for their sculptures, due to the fantastic patterns created by the invading fungi.
