"In Sculpture appeared a new artist whose initiation is a promise: Miguel Sopó Duque . His works translated three qualities that predestined him for a successful career: tenacity, audacity and marked plastic feel. A true sculpture in the round is Maternidad, by offering aspects of plastic perfection from all sides".

Revista de las Indias, No. 72, December 1944, by Walter Engel: Chronicle of exhibitions "The V Annual Salon of Colombian Artists"http://es.scribd.com/doc/66073524/50anos-SNA#scribd

 

 

 

2004 "2004. "I continue to work without rest, making three-dimensional abstract sculptures, drawings or sculptures depicting sculpture projects. There are simple drawings and sculpture projects serious study of painting. I do it for the imperative need to create forms. My mind and my hands, shaped by the blows of those who gave their lives and sweat in the mines of Zipaquira, can not rest, must continue carving out a silent tribute to the humble, reason and sense of my creativity".
