In art, a maquette is a small preliminary model for a work of sculpture. The work implies something in the nature of a rough sketch. A Maquette is used to visualise and test shapes and ideas without incurring the cost and effort of producing a full scale product. For commissioned sculptures, especially monumental public sculptures, a maquette may be used to show the client how the finished work will fit in the proposed site.
