If there were aesthetic sense in man, then the world would be peaceful, says the artist Jan Leseberg. The beauties of nature would not be destroyed but respected.

As an architect, Leseberg (born 1948) made a name as a savior Old Frisian houses. Great artists of the past as it is not only an architect, but at the same time visual artist, the natural landscapes and seas as at heart, such as cultural landscapes with their historic buildings.

Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
