To be honest I did not know this word....and when I looked it up it seems to be an other word for statue??
Well I hope so, because thinking of that I went with my mind to Camille Claudel....She was a grand woman and really made great iconic's [ hope that I write this okay!! ]
Bit of history: Camille was born on 8 December 1864 – 19 October 1943 and she was a French sculptor and graphic artist. She was the elder sister of the poet and diplomat Paul Claudel.
Camille Claudel, 1864 - 1943, was a French sculptor and graphic artist.
In 1882 the sculptor Auguste Rodin agreed to supervise a small group of young women students, one of whom was the seventeen-year-old Camille Claudel. Auguste and Camille fell in love almost at first sight. Within a few years, however, it appears that Rodin exhausted her, demanding all her time and energy in his service.
By the time she broke off the relationship, in or around 1893, she had become anxious to escape Rodin's overwhelming influence and devote herself exclusively to her own art.
I think she has made great, filled with feelings sculpture, and well.... if my view this time is not really the word iconic, than I'm still be pleased to share such a great woman!!

We have a great light-hearted theme from Heather for next week: "silly".
