The Defining Characteristics of Ancient Greek Statuary

The first freestanding statuary was developed by the Archaic Greeks, a notable accomplishment since until then the only carvings in existence were reliefs cut into walls and columns.Defining Characteristics Ancient Greek Statuary 14774576666905.jpg Kouros figures, statues of adolescent, handsome male or female (kore) Greeks, made up the majority of the sculptures. Representing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were crafted to appear stiff and commonly had foot forward; the males were vigorous, strong, and naked. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. During the Archaic time, a great time of change, the Greeks were developing new sorts of government, expressions of art, and a greater comprehension of people and cultures outside Greece. The Arcadian battles, the Spartan penetration of Samos, and other wars between city-states are instances of the types of conflicts that occurred commonly, which is consistent with other times of historical change.

The Beginnings of Contemporary Wall Fountains

Himself a learned man, Pope Nicholas V led the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 till 1455 and was responsible for the translation of hundreds of ancient documents from their original Greek into Latin. He undertook the embellishment of Rome to turn it into the worthy capital of the Christian world. Starting in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent reconstruction at the behest of the Pope.Beginnings Contemporary Wall Fountains 207025070414862650.jpg The ancient Roman tradition of building an imposing commemorative fountain at the point where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was resurrected by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was commissioned by the Pope to construct a wall fountain where we now find the Trevi Fountain. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the famed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
