Desde la Estatua de la Libertad hasta el Cristo Redentor, hay muchas esculturas que encabezan las listas de deseos de los viajeros. Algunas representan maravillas culturales, otras marcan a los héroes locales y conmemoran acontecimientos históricos. Inevitablemente terminan en nuestras fotografías de vacaciones, erguidas y rectas, como si el tiempo se hubiera detenido para ellas.

Sin embargo, la gente no siempre es muy seria a la hora de hacerse una foto con una estatua, y algunas son claramente un entretenimiento por sí mismas. De hecho, hay toda una página de Twitter dedicada a la gente que se divierte con estatuas y esculturas llamada “Funny Statue” (Estatua divertida).

A continuación hemos seleccionado algunas de las fotos más divertidas que han compartido, así que ¡desplázate hacia abajo y disfruta!

Está ampliamente aceptado que la tradición occidental de la escultura comenzó en la antigua Grecia (800 a.C. - 600 d.C.), donde los escultores empezaron a dejar de crear objetos puramente espirituales para intentar plasmar el cuerpo humano en metal y piedra. Este movimiento tuvo una profunda influencia en todo el arte posterior, hasta el siglo XX. Estos ejemplos clásicos siguen siendo la base del canon histórico del arte e informan e inspiran a los artistas contemporáneos de hoy.

En la Edad Media, el motor de la producción escultórica fue el cristianismo. Desde los retablos hasta los relieves, representaban escenas bíblicas y lo que la gente podía esperar en la otra vida.

Cuando llegó el Renacimiento, los escultores se inspiraron en el estudio de la forma humana. Por ello, los maestros se esforzaron por representarla en todo su esplendor, fusionando los estilos idealista y realista. Este periodo fue reconocido con algunas de las obras maestras más famosas de la historia de la escultura con artistas como Donatello, Ghiberti y Miguel Ángel. Algunas de estas obras maestras son el David de bronce de Donatello (1430 - 1440), las Puertas del Paraíso del Baptisterio de Florencia de Ghiberti (1425) y la Piedad de mármol de Miguel Ángel (1498 - 1499) y el David (1501 - 1504).

Entre las esculturas más famosas, hay una figurita que representa una figura de mujer desnuda desenterrada a principios del siglo XX. Se le asignó el nombre de la Venus de Willendorf, lo que representaba el hecho de que se trataba de un arte escultórico de la fertilidad. Lo increíble de esta pequeña pieza de historia es que fue creada alrededor de 25.000 años antes de Cristo, lo que la convierte en una de las primeras piezas de arte conocidas del planeta.

Otra obra maestra de la que quizá hayas oído hablar antes es la escultura renacentista llamada David, creada por Miguel Ángel. La escultura se encargó inicialmente para la catedral de Florencia para colocarla en los huecos de las tribunas de la catedral, a casi 80 metros de altura.

Los representantes de la Junta encargaron a Miguel Ángel que completara una tarea iniciada por Agostino di Duccio en 1464. En 1501, Miguel Ángel, con sólo 26 años, ya era la figura más reconocida y bien pagada de su época.

También se dice que estaba más que feliz de aceptar la tarea de esculpir un David a gran escala y trabajó incansablemente durante casi dos años para producir una de sus obras más magníficas de mármol blanco brillante. Hoy en día, el David se puede ver en el Museo Nacional del Bargello, en Florencia, así que tal vez quieras añadirlo a tu lista de deseos.

La última escultura que merece la pena destacar es el Pensador de Rodin, que es una de las esculturas más emblemáticas del mundo. Esta figura grande y musculosa ha cautivado al público durante décadas en su momento de introspección concentrada.

El Pensador se llamaba originalmente El Poeta y fue concebido como parte de Las Puertas del Infierno, inicialmente un encargo (1880) para un par de puertas de bronce de un proyectado museo de artes decorativas en París. Con el tiempo, cambió el nombre de El poeta por el de El pensador y lo expuso en solitario en 1888, para luego ampliarlo en bronce a principios del siglo XX.

El gobierno francés compró la escultura y la instaló fuera del Panteón en 1906 como regalo a la ciudad de París. En 1922 se trasladó a los jardines del Museo Rodin, donde aún se encuentra hoy.
