It is not uncommon to hear the cry raised that \sculpture intimidates people\" as a response or almost an accusation from sculptors and their sympathizers to those who are not of this group. The reply is often that... \"sculpture is what you fall over when you step back to look at a painting\" (an idea you fall over in the dark and similar). With this paper I am examining the facts that lie behind such comments from the psychological sociological and historical viewpoints rather than accepting them as pieces of repartee as closed issues or dismissing it all merely as low level altercation between the proponents of opposing types of art. I am endeavouring to show the substance of the statement as it becomes a real consideration rather than a dismissable remark."
