Architectural Statues in Early Greece

Architectural Statues Early Greece 076390034910305.jpg Sculptors garnished the elaborate columns and archways with renderings of the greek gods until the period came to a close and most Greeks had begun to think of their religion as superstitious rather than sacred; at that time, it became more standard for sculptors be compensated to portray everyday individuals as well. Portraiture became prevalent as well, and would be accepted by the Romans when they defeated the Greeks, and quite often affluent families would commission a depiction of their progenitors to be put inside their huge familial tombs. A time of aesthetic progression, the use of sculpture and alternate art forms morphed through the Greek Classical period, so it is not entirely accurate to assume that the arts served only one function.

Where did Large Outdoor Fountains Originate from?

A fountain, an amazing piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also propel water high into the air for an extraordinary effect.

Originally, fountains only served a functional purpose.Large Outdoor Fountains Originate from? 076390034910305.jpg People in cities, towns and villages received their drinking water, as well as water to bathe and wash, from aqueducts or springs nearby. Until the late nineteenth, century most water fountains functioned using the force of gravity to allow water to flow or jet into the air, therefore, they needed a supply of water such as a reservoir or aqueduct located higher than the fountain. Acting as an element of decoration and celebration, fountains also generated clean, fresh drinking water. The main components used by the Romans to create their fountains were bronze or stone masks, mostly illustrating animals or heroes. To replicate the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. King Louis XIV of France wanted to illustrate his superiority over nature by including fountains in the Gardens of Versailles. To mark the entryway of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the construction of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts arrived in the city of Rome

Since indoor plumbing became the standard of the day for fresh, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely decorative. Gravity was replaced by mechanical pumps in order to permit fountains to bring in clean water and allow for amazing water displays.

Contemporary fountains are used to adorn community spaces, honor individuals or events, and enrich recreational and entertainment events.
