In the art world predominantly influenced by men, a female presence was always problematic. Being talented was not enough; one had to be brave as well. And ready to sacrifice everything in the name of Art while following your soul path.

Women had to prove their professional presence in art as society placed some obstacles and social hardships for them.

The numbers were stacked heavily in favour of the male even until nowadays, and this is the first tour that describes not the art itself but magical women behind it.

 

What kind of people were they? What made them become sculptors – least favourable art from all for women? While women were expected to raise children or do embroidery in the drawing-room of their country houses, those rebels chose marble and bronze as their companions.
