High or Low?

These are sculptures created with poly-resin something or other. They are delightful, but are they high art or low art? Does it matter?

Some French "beaux-arts" era sculptures looked like these but they used ivory instead of resin to depict the lady's flesh. They added real gold leaf for the jewelry. Those were "high art" so why not these.

Doesn't matter...to paraphrase Duke Ellington, there is no high or low art, just good and bad...this is good.

As I said— delightful.

Hoooo Too beautiful!!
In my mind, they are nor high neither low arts... Art is in our regard & our soul, isn't it?
Thank a lot for showing us these images!
