C'est ainsi que naquirent une longue culture et évolution de los angeles sculpture. Cet ouvrage suggest au lecteur 23 000 ans de sculpture et plus de one hundred twenty exemples parmi les plus belles sculptures du monde : de l'art préhistorique à Henry Moore, sans oublier los angeles statuaire égyptienne, Michel-Ange ou Niki de Saint-Phalle.
