The Egyptian contemporary sculpture suffered a great decline over the last three decades, that reached the limit of collapse from the seventies to the nineties, due to numerous of reasons Such as the disappearance of masters and mentors of sculptor art.
Aswan International Sculpture Symposium was deemed a pact among the young Egyptian sculptors and the challenge encouraging them, to swiftly move on in confidence towards the serious sculpture work of art. With the material, the sculptors became one, which is the stones that led to the creation of new vocabulary of emotion and expression. While each one of them managed to keep his personal artistic identity, and the convoy moved on.
