From Pre-historic times to our Modern age the human figure has been the subject for artistic expression.
It has been used to record history, dramatize architecture and celebrate beauty. The human figure is portrayed realistically, abstractly or symbolically. From film to television and computers to emoji, the figure is used to communicate and tell a story. The narrative possibilities are vast and universal.
