a day at the orsay!

This is the Musee d'Orsay. It was a train station that they turned into a museum in 1986 (almost 50 years after it closed.) I spent a day there sketching (they had a wonderful Art Nouveau show.)
This is an area that they refer to as the Reception room. It houses Acedemic Arts (sculptures, murals, etc.)
Now, as you may know, I am amazed by the marble/stone sculptures. Taking a hard medium and making it look soft. The next two photos are two marble sculptures that really caught my eye that day.

How the hell did they do it??????
