The Defining Characteristics of Classic Greek Statues

Archaic Greeks were renowned for providing the first freestanding statuary; up till then, most carvings were formed out of walls and pillars as reliefs. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of adolescent and desirable male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi were believed by the Greeks to embody beauty and were sculpted with one foot leading and an uncompromising rigidity to their forward-facing poses; the male statues were always strapping, sinewy, and nude. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. A massive time of transformation for the Greeks, the Archaic period helped bring about newer forms of state, expressions of art, and a higher comprehension of people and customs outside of Greece. However, the Greek civilization was not slowed down by these battles.Fountains Water Features 207025070414862650.jpg
