Marble sculpture is the art of creating three-dimensional forms from marble. Sculpture is one among the oldest forms of arts done using marble.
Marble can also be highly polished, making it ideal for decorative work. Compared to the next best alternative stone, limestone, marble possesses a much finer grain, which makes it much easier for the sculptor to render minute detail.
