Venus, a symbol of classical image of beauty, which appears in the form of plaster statue for art school students to practice still object sketch.

As we copy this image of beauty that visualized before Christ in female form, we also practice to reproduce the real and beauty.  If this standard practice (of producing beauty) encounters the contemporary art, would either of them be any different?

Or, if we look at how art is perceived at all time and in all places, how art is portrayed within our constant debate, we can re-recognize how the external force that we labor in our construction of the concept of art.

A plastic surgeon somehow can be the double of a sculptor in terms of what they do: they reshape things they see according to their personal taste and the received standard.
