Axial Movement
In axial movement the influence of the vertical axis is loosened but retained. Volumes are tilted laterally without rotating them around their axes. The volumes of a sculptured figure can be rotated around the vertical axis and the figure can be turned from the feet upwards through the knees, hips, thorax, shoulders and head in a continuous screwlike movement. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
