Artist Creates Sculptures That Show What Would Happen If Renaissance Masters Sculpted Today

Spanish artist Gerard Mas creates humorous marble sculptures that shows elegant 15th-century ladies picking their noses, chewing gum and blowing bubbles, or using headsets while talking on the phone.

I thought about the millions of attitudes and situations that old artworks couldn’t capture because they were simply inappropriate for a lady in the 15th century. I decided to try to do it in an old media and style. It was something like an invented old art. After that, the anachronisms came and pop elements, too, as a natural evolution.
