Images of Michelangelo’s marble carved sculptures are shown as Frances explains how sculptors have to create movement in something that is static. She also shows us a nine-foot sculpture of Leeds United footballer, Billy Bremner, and explains how she used the barley sugar technique of the early sculptors to accentuate the muscle.
