Aspects of Outdoor Statues in Archaic Greece

The primitive Greeks built the very first freestanding statuary, an awesome achievement as most sculptures up until then had been reliefs cut into walls and pillars. Youthful, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks were the subject matter of most of the sculptures, or kouros figures. Symbolizing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were crafted to look stiff and commonly had foot in front; the males were vigorous, powerful, and nude. The kouroi grew to be life-sized starting in 650 BC. Throughout the Archaic period, a great time of changes, the Greeks were developing new sorts of government, expressions of art, and a deeper awareness of people and cultures outside Greece. However, these clashes did little to impede the progression of the Greek civilization.
