Portraiture, which would be recognized by the Romans upon their annexation of Greek society became conventional as well, and wealthy family members would at times commission a rendering of their forebears to be added in immense familial tombs. It is incorrect to state that the arts had one purpose during the course of The Classical Greek period, a duration of artistic accomplishment during which the usage of sculpture and other art forms changed. It may possibly be the advanced quality of Greek sculpture that grabs our eye these days; it was on a leading-edge practice of the ancient world whether it was made for religious reasons or aesthetic pleasure.
