Thomas BaumgärtelThomas Baumgaertel (born in 1960) known as the "banana prayer" is now a respected artist, in whose series the pictures the yellow fruit plays a major role.

Since 1986, he has marked the most interesting worldwide art centers- from New York to Beijing - with his banana. Now, it is the logo of the modeern art scene and can be found on the portals of almost all galleries and modern art museums worldwide. For Baumgaertel, banana symbolizes the freedom of art, which also means the possibility to experience the subversive fun or establish the banal graffiti as an artistic logo in public spaces.

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.
