The Main Characteristics of Classic Greek Statuary

Main Characteristics Classic Greek Statuary 75800617194.jpg The first freestanding statuary was designed by the Archaic Greeks, a distinguished achievement since until then the sole carvings in existence were reliefs cut into walls and pillars. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of adolescent and attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi, regarded by the Greeks to exemplify beauty, had one foot extended out of a strict forward-facing posture and the male statues were always undressed, with a compelling, strong build. The kouroi became life-sized starting in 650 BC. During the Archaic period, a big time of changes, the Greeks were evolving new forms of government, expressions of art, and a better comprehension of people and cultures outside Greece. Wars like The Arcadian wars, the Spartan invasion of Samos, and other wars among city-states are suggestive of the tumultuous nature of the time, which was similar to other periods of historical disturbance. However, these conflicts did not significantly hinder the advancement of the Greek civilization.
