The Genesis of a Sculpture

In this animated film, without ever seeing the sculptor or his hands at work with the chisel, we follow the magical transformation of the stone's contours, as layers are chipped away to reveal a face - and then, mysteriously, partly to eradicate it again. Many young viewers will learn an important lesson about art when they ask why, after nearly having the sculpture realistically 'finished,' the artist seems to take it back to a less defined form.

'The technique of this research film of great integrity is remarkable. The care taken to be truthful extends almost to complete frankness. This is a courageous film.' UNESCO
