Fabrics in Sculptures

Fabric modelling is one of the most complicated research in textiles.  Many research are working on realistic representation of the fabric, which include adding many factors to the equation such as friction and yarn bending and so on.

The amazing thing about this type of prediction is that it was an obsession of artists through history, from ancient civilisation in Iraq and Syria to the amazing Greek sculptures to the modern contemporary art. Here I am listing some examples of these amazing sculptures and their great fabric draping details.
