Sculpture have to be in sync with us

Over the years we have been realizing how careful we have to be in chosing our sculptures. They have to be in sync with us and the main question we are asking ourselves when shopping (technical questions aside) is: do we like them? Are we really convinced that they match us? Sculpture stays with us a long time, they seem to us more like family members. We are convinced they chose their future owners and we have no say in the matter. They can be exacting, too, like letting us know who they prefer to have in the same room with them and whose proximity they’d rather not suffer. They have a mind of their own.
