La pensée” by Auguste Rodin, 1895

Non finito is a sculpting technique literally meaning that the work is unfinished. Non finito sculptures appear unfinished because the artist only sculpts part of the block, leaving the figure appearing to be stuck within the block of material. It was pioneered by Donatello during the Renaissance and was used by Michelangelo as well as numerous other artists.
