Chinese artist Luo Li Rong creates life-size bronze sculpture art of women inspired by Renaissance and Baroque sculpting techniques. Her statues are usually captured in motion, often with their dresses or garments seemingly fluttering in the breeze around them, and the artist’s meticulous attention to detail ensures that every crease and fold is precisely where it should be.   One of the great things about art is that it's always open to interpretation. You can pore over your favorite painting over and over again and still discover a new cryptic symbol or hidden detail..
