    If we can draw any conclusions based on the first confirmed sculptures made by a man’s hand then the art of small sculptures has been with us for thousands of years. Over the course of this period, man has developed a special kind of admiration for megalomaniac artwork, but still there is something that the small form of sculpture (figurine) has to offer which makes us symbolically return to these miniature objects, often fetishistic relics, to which we ascribe strong magnetism. The practical part of this diploma thesis has also been devoted to that particular form but the latter doesn’t exist if it cannot sense the warmth of a human body. As such, based on a human body, it assimilates some of its characteristics – for example warmth and movement – thus becoming a sculpture with the body as its pedestal. In the pedagogical and research part of the thesis, I focused on the importance of demonstration when it comes to teaching art in primary schools. I pointed out some shortcuts found on the Internet which enable one to achieve a specific task’s objectives. I analyzed the works of the two groups of fifth-grade pupils and uncovered their relationship to sculpturing and to their own work if they had previously been subjected to a teacher’s indirect demonstration or if the pupils had merely watched a video clip showcasing the procedure.
