Summary/Abstract: Above all, sculpture is an act. More than anything else, it is an act of erecting! In the beginning the world existed horizontally. The creatures that could stand were not aware of the greatness of their ability. If the rising of the primates on two legs physically marks the beginning of the process of erecting, than the sculptor is the first human being who stopped considering himself as a mental four-legged creature. Being the first vertically erected object, sculpture symbolizes the revolt against and the victory over the Egyptian horizontal of death, which can equally be drawn, like an evil omen, above or under the life span of both the genius and the scoundrel, the lion and the lamb. The work of the sculptor is an erected stone and the first conscious sign and determination of the one who lives to remain upright even after death. The oak tree dies standing, but erected within his sculpture, the sculptor stands even after death.
